Portrait of a PBDA Graduate
Our graduates are empowered to fulfill their individual potentials in their immediate school futures and beyond. They are prepared for acceptance and success at appropriate, excellent secondary schools. As they move on, they will take with them the richness of our school family.
They will have:
- been inspired by an environment of thoughtful excellence, humble respect, mutual care and support, and the highest expectations.
- learned the value of focused thinking and sustained effort.
- developed keen minds, capable of complex thought leading to articulate self-expression.
- learned to respect all opponents, in victory or defeat.
- developed genuine compassion.
- gained an understanding of their responsibility for the health of our planet.
- developed an understanding of their self-worth and their role in a changing world.
Mostly, they will have gained a powerful, enduring confidence that can only belong to those who have met genuine challenges through their own efforts in a supportive community. It is a confidence that allows our graduates to meet future challenges, to persevere past setbacks and obstacles, to know their own minds yet allow for differing viewpoints, to adapt to changing circumstances, to be thoughtful, generous and kind, and to choose their own paths to meaningful lives.
