As part of our Global Studies initiative, The Cushman School has established exchange programs with schools across the world. From our ongoing partnership with China-based Hunan University, to real-time interactions that take place from classroom to classroom via Skype, our School continues to prioritize cross-cultural exposure to benefit our students.
A recent addition to Cushman’s travel abroad agenda was the trip to Spain over Spring Break. Several students enjoyed this excursion of a lifetime in which they attended Colegio Internacional Altair in Madrid to become fully immersed in the Spanish language with students their same age. The group then toured onto Toledo, Cordoba and Sevilla to gain a true sense of the history, architecture and culture of this impressive country.
Cushman’s international travel experiences are unique since most exchanges of this nature are only available to high school aged students. But with increased necessity for students to acquire a global perspective, Cushman makes this kind of real-life exposure available for interested Elementary and Middle School students.
Travel aspects of Global Education:
The purpose of Cushman's exchange programs and global initiatives is to ensure our School offers a vast educational journey to meet the needs of our diverse community while preparing its students for the multi-cultural marketplace they will soon enter.
