Chatsworth Hills IB Values – Balanced
Balance for students at Chatsworth Hills Academy comes in many forms including physical, emotional and intellectual realms. Whether your child is just starting out at CHA in our Early Childhood Program or finishing up with our Middle Years Program, our staff of experienced professionals design your child’s day in an intentionally balanced method to achieve well-being for ourselves and others. With the International Baccalaureate World School program as its rudder, Chatsworth Hills Academy follows all ten of the attributes most valued by IB World Schools, called the IB Learner Profile, including “balanced.”
“We understand the importance of balancing different aspects of our lives—intellectual, physical, and emotional—to achieve well-being for ourselves and others. We recognize our interdependence with other people and with the world in which we live.” ~ IB Learner Profile
When CHA students achieve daily balance, the result is optimum learning combined with peace and harmony.
How Does Chatsworth Develop Balanced Students?
Having a balanced lifestyle is considered essential for optimum levels of physical and mental health. At Chatsworth Hills Academy, we develop all three areas equally to achieve balanced students.
We begin each day at CHA with the intention of making the best of it. We teach children, young and old, that even though the day may take some unexpected twists and turns, it’s important to keep things in perspective and maintain a positive attitude. Within that framework, our staff develops creative and active lessons that engage our students in learning and encourage them to think critically and solve problems. The IB curriculum prepares our students for success in today’s diverse world. We teach students to be proactive in organizing their lessons and day by assessing what they need to accomplish. These organizational tools and attitude shifts help keep our students stress-free and enjoying learning.
Unhealthy kids are much less likely to be successful learners. As such, we incorporate both physical and nutritional health opportunities into our CHA day. We serve lunch and snacks that meet and exceed the federal and state nutritional guidelines and encourage students to drink plenty of water. We set aside time during the day for physical activity including games, sporting events and free play. And, we allow time to unwind with reading and naps. We also teach students about nutrition and staying healthy.
Chatsworth Hills Academy provides our students with a loving, caring environment where children are nurtured and can grow into emotionally healthy young adults. Our staff gives each child the attention they need while creating healthy boundaries in the classroom that will give children the security to express themselves and learn. CHA also provides emotional balance through the time and effort we make to split up our students time between learning, playing and socializing. Giving students time to pursue their interests and to make time for friends, makes learning more meaningful.
