Global Partners

Global partnerships are friendships forged for the sake of providing students with the opportunity to:

  • Investigate the World - Students investigate the world beyond their immediate environment.
  • Recognize Perspectives - Students’ recognize their own and others’ perspective.
  • Communicate Ideas - Students communicate their ideas effectively with diverse audiences.
  • Take Action - Students translate their ideas and findings into actions to improve conditions. (Asia Society Partnership for Global Learning, Global Competencies)
"Students today can easily connect with their peers in another country, practice language skills with native speakers, see classrooms in other nations, and make a human connection with someone across the world." (Asia Society)

HPISD’s Global Connections Department is committed to helping teachers and students identify global resources and international partnerships for the purpose of curricular connections and increased opportunities for developing a global lens.
