"Global Gateway and Connections have transformed the way we do business. We've moved beyond the rock stars (our international teachers), and global learning is now integrated into everything we do. More of the American teachers are teaching with cultural competence."
"Teaching Cultural Studies changed the way I teach. I am now integrating project-based learning in my other classes."
"Our international teacher and her team have changed the school. All of the students can't wait to get to the 5th grade! Global learning is having us dig deeper and the kids are getting it!"
"We have made the decision as a family that we will not move to a community that cannot offer this immersion program for our girls, even if it means turning down significant career advancement opportunities."
