Global Education

Navigation

At King School, the global education program is dedicated to preparing responsible global citizens by providing students with the mindset, skills, and resources they need to engage actively and ethically in the global community. Through our PreK-12 curriculum, King faculty educate students to appreciate their shared humanity while they investigate the world, and recognize their own and others’ perspectives. In the classroom and through experiential cultural, language, and service programs, students develop their understanding of the world and of globalization, so that they can recognize the need for their participation in ethical, cultural, socio-economic, political, scientific, ethnic, religious, and environmental issues.

King School Partners with American School of Warsaw to Learn About the Russia-Ukraine Conflict

When the Russian forces invaded Ukraine at the end of February, upper school students Anabelle Creveling ’22 and Meredith Joo ’23 sprung into action. They started to network, searching for ways to connect with those directly affected by the attacks.

Together they learned that history teacher Lindsey Rossler had a friend and colleague at the American School of Warsaw. Poland, which is adjacent to Ukraine, has welcomed the largest number of Ukrainian refugees since the onset of the conflict.

Little Vikings Explore the Long Island Sound

Our little Vikings ventured off to SoundWaters earlier this week to explore the treasures of the Long Island Sound. First grade students participated in two hands-on learning experiences that introduced them to local animals and the negative impact of oil spills on the Long Island Sound and beyond.

The class was divided into two groups for simultaneous lessons on each subject, followed by interactive STEM experiments. The first group got up close with live animals, touching and holding the creatures to observe clues about their ways of life in the Long Island Sound.

Upper and Lower School Students Collaborate in Crossover Curriculum

To kick off the new year, upper school French teacher Denise Mihailoff and lower school teacher Helen Santoro teamed up for an opportunity to collaborate on curriculum across divisions. While upper school french students are researching the legacy of cultural heritage, Grade 5 students are learning about ancient civilizations, providing the students with a unique opportunity to make connections in one another’s learning.

Global Scholars Explore Geography Around the World

Using the SQ3R study method of surveying, questioning, reading, reciting, and reviewing, sixth grade students explored the geography of regions around the world. This five-step process is designed to encourage understanding of a text by engaging the reader throughout the research process. Under the guidance of history teacher Dana Karin, the students studied Africa, Latin America, Monsoon Asia, and Southwest and Central Asia and then designed a poster to present their research.
