Since our inception, JCS has worked hard to foster awareness in our students that we are all global citizens. This is accomplished through an emphasis woven throughout our curriculum: that all of us have a responsibility to be aware of and consider the entire global community as we move forward into the future.
While in some years this goal has been highly enriched by international travel, we do not believe that fostering global awareness requires international travel to be accomplished.
We seek opportunities for our students to interact with many types of people from other cultures and countries. We teach World Geography, World Cultures and Global Issues. We address issues of environmental sustainability in science classes and economic sustainability issues in social studies. We offer a native speaker teaching Spanish, as well as the opportunity to study several world languages on line. We encourage and offer credit for foreign exchanges and inter-cultural experiences.
