Global Contexts

Each unit of inquiry within each class has a Global Context. The Global Contexts provide students with an opportunity to see the “why” behind their learning; students are able to see the relevance and importance of their learning in terms of the real world. 

The MYP Global Contexts are: 

  • Scientific & Technical Innovation

  • Orientation in Space & Time

  • Personal & Cultural Expression

  • Identities & Relationships 

  • Globalization & Sustainability 

  • Fairness & Development 

At ISNS, we put a significant emphasis on educating the whole child. As such, MYP and DP students are presented with a variety of opportunities both locally and globally that allow them to develop as internationally minded and compassionate young people. From Week Without Walls, to the Phoenix Eco Squad Laos Trip, to our International Student Exchange Program and our new Project Management & Leadership course with the University of Prince Edward Island, students can be challenged in a safe environment while serving communities, developing important leadership skills, and continuing their journey as a lifelong learner. We encourage our students to make the most of these incredibly valuable opportunities of growth as they undoubtedly impact our world for the better while making memories to last a lifetime!
