IB Mission Statement 

The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and life-long learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right. 

The MYP emphasizes intellectual challenge, encouraging students to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects and to the real world. It fosters the development of skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement, qualities that are essential for life in the 21st century. 

Nesbit IB MYP Mission Statement

Nesbit School is a safe, nurturing, and respectful learning environment where diversity is valued. 

Nesbit School is committed to equipping our students with the tools they need for academic, personal and social success.

Nesbit School embraces the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme mission, intertwining it with our core values of being respectful, responsible, safe, and inclusive. We are committed to fostering inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring individuals who actively contribute to creating a more harmonious world through intercultural understanding and mutual respect.

In partnership with an International Baccalaureate framework, we diligently craft challenging educational curriculum and authentic assessments. Our goal is to empower students to embody active, compassionate, and lifelong learning. We instill the belief that acknowledging and valuing differences not only expands perspectives but also forms the foundation of a united, diverse global community.

Service Projects 

All 8th grade students will be asked to complete a service project consisting of 15 hours of work designed to improve the community or world with which we live in.  By the end of the project, students will be able to say with confidence, "I make a difference!" because they will have found a way to serve our community or world in a positive way.


Nesbit Middle School Students will be issued a Chromebook for use both at school and at home.  Once assigned to a child, the Chromebook will become the responsibility of that child through 8th grade.  Children will take their Chromebooks home daily and are expected to bring their Chromebook to school every day fully charged and ready for use.  Children are expected to use the Chromebook in accordance with BRSSD's Technology Use Agreement as well as Nesbit's Technology Use Agreement.  Broken and lost Chromebooks will not be replaced.  Therefore, children are highly encouraged to take the utmost of care with these Chromebooks.  Should a Chromebook become unusable, the responsible child will no longer have access to a Chromebook at home.  However, they will still have access to a Chromebook while at school.  Upon graduation from 8th grade, the Chromebook will be returned to Nesbit School.
