Welcome to the Global Perspectives website!

This online publication was designed as a part of the curriculum of a unique new educational program designed by several teachers from Ontario, Canada. Here you will find an abundance of information about the new program and what makes it so special, as well as information on the school, 5 staff members and 25 students involved in the first year of the program's existence.

Also, as a part of the program, and in an attempt to understand different cultures, this group of 25 students is involved in an international educational exchange with our sister city in Zweibruckën, Germany, where we currently are right now for five weeks! To find out more information about this exchange, please take a look in the Youth Ambassadors section of the site.
