  • We believe that...
      • Learning is developmental
      • Global Ed Mission StatementLearning should be collaborative
      • Assessment should be authentic
      • Learning should be child-centered
      • Students should be able to work independently and cooperatively
      • We are all (teachers, students and parents) responsible for working together to build a true sense of community
      • There should be cross-age learning in multi-age environments
      • Students work best in a non-graded and ungraded environment
      • Learning should involve hands-on, project-based, integrated and thematic learning
      • Students are most successful when there is parent involvement
      • Teachers should use a variety of resources
      • Students should receive instruction within their zone of proximal development (regardless of grade level)
      • Students should take an in-depth look at issues & problems and study how these issues cut across national boundaries and concern all people as citizens of a global community
      • Students should examine historical perspectives and how they relate to current world situations.
      • Perspective-taking (being able to see things through the eyes an minds of others) should be emphasized.
