Winsor opens girls’ eyes to the world. The school's Principles of Global Responsibility spell out what we believe global citizenship entails. Here, thinking globally means thinking about the skills, habits of mind, attitudes, and aptitudes that the 21st century will demand: to get along with many types of people, to understand many cultures, to be flexible and resilient. While this begins in the classroom, an array of programs on and off campus expands girls’ minds.
Exchanges and trips
Winsor encourages global citizenship through a growing array of international opportunities, including:
- Exchange with Greentown School in Hangzhou, China
- Exchange with Collège Privé du Sacré Coeur, Aix-en-Provence, France
- Eighth-grade French trip to Quebec
- Arts and history of India trip (March 2013)
- Spanish language and culture trip to Ecuador (March 2013)
Concert tours, community service trips, and speaking competitions have also taken girls around the globe from the Dominican Republic to Italy to South Africa.
“The core of a great education is exchange—the exchange of ideas, ideas that lead to knowledge, enlightenment, understanding and progress.”
Rachel Friis Stettler
Guest speakers and performers
Guest speakers and assemblies also bring the world to Winsor. These offer equally powerful lessons and varying perspectives about culture, politics, the environment and more.
