Dear Global Studies Families,
I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our students. I hope your summer was relaxing and enjoyable. We are excited to begin this journey towards global awareness at our new Global Studies Magnet Middle School.
Our students will access new state of the art technology to:
- research global issues with one to one technology in each classroom.
- visit other countries in our virtual reality gallery.
- meet students around the state, country and world in our distance learning lab.
- create inspiring public service announcements in our video production lab .
- communicate in various languages in our new language lab.
- create original music using garage band.
- create professional posters with our new printing press.
Our vision is for all of our students to be curious, resilient global citizens who use intellect and empathy to shape the world. We are committed to providing a rigorous, relevant curriculum in a safe, positive school community! When we work together as a committed team, all students succeed and reach their highest potential.
