Student of the Month

The International Baccalaureate (IB) approach applies ten characteristics to describe an IB learner. As an IB World School, West Jordan High School students are working diligently to learn and exemplify the same ten characteristics that distinguish a West Jordan Jaguar from any other student.
Those West Jordan Jaguar attributes are: Communicator, Open-Minded, Risk-taker, Balanced, Principled, Knowledgeable, Caring, Thinker, Inquirer, and Reflective. Each month teachers recognized their students who demonstrated a deep understanding and application of the West Jordan Jaguar attributes.
