Habits of Mind

Ahmad Ibrahim Primary School (AIPS) has adopted Arthur L. Costa's Habits of Mind as a process of leading students to think intelligently. AIPS believes that its students will strive from learning how to behave intelligently when they do not have answers to their problems or are confronted with problems. They will also know how to act on information presented to them.
