Francis Parker School's Vision Statement

“We will take our classrooms out to the world through meaningful, age-appropriate opportunities for experiential education, service learning, environmental awareness, and character education.”

Middle School Global Education

The world is interconnected. Our society and individual lives are directly affected by what occurs in other societies. Our students must develop a global perspective so that they have the capacity to understand how their interactions affect those around them. The awareness of other cultures is the first step to defusing future conflict and allowing students to assume goodwill. A global education opens our students’ eyes to the complex interplay between different societies and enables them to appreciate and understand different cultures.

Global Competencies: A student who is globally competent should:
  • Understand community
  • Make connections between local and global community
  • Know geography (people and places)
  • Be open to other cultures
  • Be able to communicate in another language
  • Have knowledge of current events
  • Have the ability to problem-solve
  • Be curious about the world
