Global Classroom Project

Our Collaboration with the Montessori International College in Trujillo, Peru

What is the Global Classroom Project?

Elementary, middle, and high schools throughout Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) participate in the Global Classroom Project, which provides an opportunity for students to work with peers from around the world on authentic tasks and challenges. 

As part of the Global Classroom Project, schools select a Sustainable Development Goal from among 17 goals established by the United Nations as a blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet. 

Throughout the Global Classroom Project, students also learn attributes of Portrait of a Graduate, which prioritizes the development of skills that will empower FCPS students to be productive citizens of a global community and successful in the workforce of the future. 

Our School's Partnership

Class: 8th Grade AVID

We plan on engaging students with their community by having them create a civic action proposal. Students will brainstorm, collaborate, put into action, provide feedback, and reflect on their civic action proposals.

UN Sustainable Development Goals:

Goal 11Goal 12Goal 16

Portrait of a Graduate: Ethical and Global Citizen and Goal-Directed and Resilient
