The purpose of the School Partnership Program is to increase a school’s sustainability by promoting international understanding, strengthening cross-cultural exchanges and cooperation, and expanding global perspectives for both teachers and students. Four underlying concepts will stimulate understanding about similarities and differences within the global community, and will strengthen perspectives on the global challenges that continue to exist.
- Simple connections create friendships across the globe.
- The Global Learning Benchmarks guide learning.
- Understanding our varied ways of living is basic to becoming a global citizen.
- The challenges to global sustainability influence the lives of everyone around the world.
