AT A GLANCE: Important Course Documents & Assessment Information (right column), Philosophy & Curriculum of TOK, Weekly Homework Schedule


The important thing is not to stop questioning.  Curiosity has its own reasoning

for existing.  One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries 

of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality.  It is enough if one tries 

merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day.  Never lose a holy curiosity.

Albert Einstein

Central to the educational philosophy of the International Baccalaureate Program, the Theory of Knowledge course challenges students to reflect critically on diverse ways of knowing and areas of knowledge, and to consider the role which knowledge plays in a global society.  The class encourages students to become aware of themselves as thinkers, to become aware of the complexity of knowledge, and to recognize the need to act responsibly in an increasingly interconnected world.  TOK is designed to provide students with an opportunity for reflection and inquiry, fueled by their own and their classmates' curiosities.  As such, the course is not designed to impart new information so much as it is intended to explore the origins and limitations of what the students have already learned in other courses.  Students will carefully consider and investigate perspectives as they pertain to all of the I.B. curriculum’s subject categories.
