Northstar Earns Global Citizenship Award


The Global Citizenship award honors schools selected by AFS-USA and the National Society of High School Scholars. 

This award recognizes these schools’ exceptional dedication to fostering global citizenship through intercultural learning—both inside and outside of the classroom. From hosting international students, to encouraging American students to study abroad, to incorporating intercultural learning initiatives into their curriculum, these institutions have demonstrated a strong commitment to developing students’ global competency.

The National Association of High School Scholars assessment:

"Northstar School is dedicated to developing global awareness and citizenship through a unique, specialized curriculum and a strong emphasis on experiential learning.  Students take courses in World History, Human Geography, Leadership Development, and Environmental Science to learn about cultural diversity and conflict resolution, as well as the impact of humans on the environment. 


The school’s weekly guest speaker program brings people from around the world to discuss contemporary global issues. 


Northstar students have the opportunity to travel abroad as well as welcome international students into their community."
