During a cool summer evening in Bilbao, Spain, we watched as the 13 graduates pictured above stood on stage and reflected on their shared experiences, revealing deep bonds that were forged across many countries, incredible excursions, shared meals, and late night IB study sessions....

Tattoos have an extensive history in Japan, and to truly understand the stigma behind them it is essential to be aware of their significance. The first records of tattoos...

So we go to restaurants, trying to communicate our...

Walking through the Peace Park, my soul would tremble due to the cold that was brought on by the horrors of war, especially August 6th, 1945, the day when the A-bomb, also known as “Little Boy,” was dropped on the city of Hiroshima. Among the thousands who were killed, a vast number were kids --  innocent kids with dreams in their eyes and aspirations in their minds. This painting is...

Where and how do you learn? How do you develop a passion for curiosity? How do you keep your mind open to new people, ideas, and possibilities? These are all questions being faced by educators and students as our world gains a more global context.  For a rare few who are lucky enough to have talented and equally curious teachers, this might happen in the confines of the classroom. But...
