In the final year of the IB program, students participate in a culminating project known as the Exhibition.  The central idea must be of sufficient scope and significance to warrant a detailed investigation by all students. All fifth grade students are required to engage in a collaborative trans disciplinary inquiry process that involves them in identifying, investigating and offering solutions to real-life issues or problems.
