DP-English.pngFoss is a school of grace, compassion, scholarship, and service. Our International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program prepares students for college, and with IB, students are more likely to get into and through their college and/or career of choice. We are committed to serving students and families in proactive, meaningful ways so that students can earn their education and be proud of their accomplishments. For the Foss Family, nothing is more important than good health and good education. We promote and grow both here at Foss IB World School.

As it is, the lover of inquiry must follow his beloved wherever it may lead him.
Beyond all sciences, philosophies, theologies, and histories, a child's relentless inquiry is truly all it takes to remind us that we don't know as much as we think we know.
Criss JamiInquirers
Reason and free inquiry are the only effectural agents against error.
Thomas JeffersonInquirers
Doubt comes in at the window when inquiry is denied at the door.
Benjamin JowettInquirers
Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it.
Lao TzuKnowledgeable
What is now proved was once only imagined.
William BlakeKnowledgeable
When you know better you do better.
Maya AngelouKnowledgeable
Wisdom is not a product of schooling, but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.
Knowing how to think empowers you far beyond those who know only what to think.
Neil Degrasse TysonThinkers
Be the silent watcher of your thoughts and behavior. You are beneath the thinker. You are the stillness beneath the mental noise. You are the love and joy beneath the pain.
Eckhart TolleThinkers
We need more people speaking out. This country is not overrun with rebels and free thinkers. It’s overrun with sheep and conformists.
Bill MaherThinkers
Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it.
Ernest HolmesThinkers
Small is the number of people who see with their eyes and think with their minds
Albert EinsteinThinkers
Educators take something simple and make it complicated. Communicators take something complicated and make it simple.
John C. MaxwellCommunicators
Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools, because they have to say something.
Communication leads to community, that is, to understanding, intimacy and mutual valuing.
Rollo MayCommunicators
In the last analysis, what we are communicates far more eloquently than anything we say or do.
Stephen CoveyCommunicators
One needs to be slow to form convictions, but once formed they must be defended against the heaviest odds.
On matters of style, swim with the current, on matters of principle, stand like a rock.
Thomas JeffersonPrincipled
Like love, the light or guidance of truth that influences us exists only in living form, not in principles or rules or expectations or advice, however widely circulated
Alan WattsPrincipled
Ideology knows the answer before the question has been asked. Principles are something different.
George PackerPrincipled
If your philosophy is not unsettled daily then you are blind to all the universe has to offer.
Neil Degrasse TysonOpen-Minded
Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
George Bernard ShawOpen-Minded
Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won’t come in.
Isaac AsimovOpen-Minded
Let yourself be open and life will be easier. A spoon of salt in a glass of water makes the water undrinkable. A spoon of salt in a lake is almost unnoticed.
Buddha ShakyamuniOpen-Minded
A mind is a like a parachute. It doesn’t work if it is not open.
Frank ZappaOpen-Minded
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
Leo BuscagliaCaring
The closest thing to being cared for is to care for someone else.
Carson McCullersCaring
It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.
Ralph Waldo EmersonCaring
It’s time to care; it’s time to take responsibility; it’s time to lead; it’s time for a change; it’s time to be true to our greatest self; it’s time to stop blaming others.
Steve MaraboliCaring

How we're doing

To measure progress toward meeting the School Board’s strategic goals, we use a set of benchmarks that let parents and community members track our progress. It’s like a report card for our school and the whole district.
