Courses in all content areas infuse global content, resources, and perspectives into the curriculum on a daily basis, challenging students to engage in inquiry-based learning and make connections across disciplines.
Students can customize their learning experience by taking advantage of unique opportunities to explore advanced study through expanded course offerings such as:
- 90 Minute AP World History in Grade 9
- Global and International Studies 1-4
Students will have the opportunity to engage in learning that mirrors authentic, real-world situations through substantive, globally-focused simulations such as Model United Nations. These experiences provide an opportunity for students to develop complex analytic and problem-solving skills directly applicable to their life-long education and careers.
The community service and service-learning opportunities GIS students participate in will prepare them to be active global citizens by engaging directly with their local, national, and international communities.
Service learning is a type of experiential education in which young people work in the community on real projects that also builds academic skills.
GIS students will take part in local community service projects that have global implications. The outcomes include giving students real-world experiences, a sense of civic responsibility, and a love of lifelong learning and volunteerism.
