“The only real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.”
Marcel Proust (1871-1922)
ToK is a critical component that weaves the entire IB program together. Through a series of entry points, such as Ways of Knowing, which focuses on how we gain knowledge of the world and our place in it, in conjunction with Areas of Knowledge, that explores our methods of gaining knowledge, students develop the tools to investigate and evaluate the nature of learning across their curriculum, while enabling them to be critical and receptive world citizens.
Spanning the first three semesters of the IB diploma, ToK culminates with a critical essay and a presentation on a topic of the student's choosing.
