At iSchoolOC, we love celebrating our international community. With 32% of our families having dual nationality, and a total of 30 different nationalities represented in our school, it's no wonder we are so proud of this unique part of our identity. We believe that the diversity among us is one of our greatest strengths and something to be celebrated. Let's dive deeper into why the international perspective of iSchoolOC is so special.
The Benefits of an International Perspective:
Having a diverse range of nationalities represented in our community gives us the opportunity to learn from different cultures and gain new perspectives on life. It allows us to see things from different angles and helps us to appreciate the beauty in all cultures. An international perspective also makes us more open-minded and tolerant of others, which we believe is essential in today's world. It encourages us to think critically about issues from multiple viewpoints and consider different opinions before making decisions. This helps us to develop strong problem solving skills that can be applied beyond the classroom walls.
Our International Curriculum:
At iSchoolOC, we don't just celebrate diversity, we teach it too! We have developed an international curriculum designed to help students understand global issues from a variety of perspectives and learn about different cultures around the world. This curriculum has been carefully crafted by teachers with experience teaching overseas and offers an immersive learning experience for students as they explore language, history, geography, culture, science, math, literature and more through the lens of global citizenship. By teaching students about other countries and their customs in a meaningful way, we are helping them become informed citizens who value diversity and respect cultural differences
The international community at iSchoolOC adds something special to our school that can't be replicated anywhere else. We are proud to call ourselves an international school because it reflects who we truly are as a community. We embrace diversity as one of our core values and strive to promote acceptance for everyone. Our international perspective gives us valuable insight into other cultures which helps foster understanding between people from all walks of life—and that's something worth celebrating! 🎉🎊🎈
