The Global Education Program at King aims to develop the students’ knowledge of the world’s cultural diversity within the context of globalization. Students will learn the similarities and differences connecting all cultures in an effort to foster multi-cultural understanding. By developing in students an educated awareness of our increasingly interdependent world, King will prepare them to recognize the need for their active participation in ethical, cultural, socio-economic, political, scientific and environmental issues. For more information about the Global Eduction program follow our blog.
US Global Education
At the Upper School level, the students take a multidisciplinary and multicultural approach to examining and understanding the global issues facing the modern world. They engage in an intensive study of global problems -- environmental, socio-economic, diplomatic, and intellectual -- and responses to them: Students will examine those problems from diverse perspectives and learn how to critically assess the common interests and challenges that they face as global citizens.
MS Global Education
At the Middle School, students deepen their global understanding of human geography, by gaining a comprehensive knowledge of the diversity of ethnicities, religions, languages, cultures and their history. The program also touches on anthropological aspects of various societies such as family and social structure, people in relation to their environment, and the challenges traditional societies face in the context of the modern world. Furthermore, students develop their sense of responsibility toward our planet by learning about eco-friendly forms of energy and other pressing environmental issues such as water shortage, famine and endangered species.
LS Global Education
The Global Education mission begins at the Lower School where our young students embark on a journey of discovery: they explore a variety of world cultures by means of hands-on projects, cultural diversity initiatives, global citizenship awareness and exposure to the learning of their first foreign languages. They also explore the environmental richness of our planet, and learn how to treasure its beauty and how to respect nature.
