OUR MISSION

The goal of Global Schools' Alliance is to ensure children experience a better quality of education no matter where they live. Our mission is to collaboratively raise the standards of education in countries worldwide by connecting with the most progressive schools to:

 

  • exchange research about how children learn and the newest ways to educate children

  • share teaching and learning methods that are proven best practices

  • continously develop member schools' teachers through rotating fellowships at other member schools' locations

  • create common projects between the schools that have a trans-national relevance

  • facilitate educational visits between members to understand diverse cultures and work ethics

  • evaluate, adopt, and share emerging technologies for learning.

WHY IT MATTERS

Immersive techniques practiced by the GSA members resonate with many cultures' pedagogical wisdom and lend themselves to easy adaptation in any context. GSA knows that when exemplar schools join together to share best practices and research and are committed to each others' excellence, school leaders, teachers, and students benefit.
