Unlocking a world of education by connecting innovative schools with like-minded partners globally
The Global Schools' Alliance was formed in 2012 by progressive schools worldwide because they realized that while the world is rapidly changing, education and schools are not. The GSA wants to change that.
Member schools are amongst the highest rated schools in their respective countries - ranging from preschools to high schools - and have agreed to bring their experience and knowledge to work together to improve the standards of education globally.
GSA connects child-focused innovators with like-minded educational institutes around the world by sharing research, support, and peer critiques with the goal of revolutionizing education with child-centered learning as the core.
14 INSPIRING & INNOVATIVE SCHOOLS
440 SUPERSTAR TEACHERS
7,110 ENGAGED STUDENTS
GSA is led by Lene Jensby Lange, Autens, who was appointed coordinator of the Alliance in January 2015. Lene is a leading expert on visionary school development, school architecture, learning space design and global collaboration in education.
Leading progressive schools from around the world were evaluated and handpicked for the Alliance.
Since 2012, the heads of great progressive schools informally began discussing a partnership; from these conversations, an alliance was born. The brainchild of global educators David Price, OBE (member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire); Andrew Raymer (Founder and former Head of Matthew Moss UK); and Dr. Steven Edwards (White House and World Bank advisor), GSA's core criteria of innovation was set with a goal for schools to collaborate and be part of a learning community across the world.
This 18-20 October 2016, GSA member schools convened in Copenhagen, Denmark for the second annual symposium. Principals, Heads of School, Founders, and School Leaders converged for a three day conference hosted by Alliance members, Ørestad Gymnasium and Autens. Immersed in a lot of dialogue, open discussions, and participant-led sessions we jointly continued to build our shared vision for the future of GSA.
