IGSS Organic Garden Opening Ceremony April 22, 2012

 

our mission: The Integrated Global Studies School is designed to provide a small-school setting for students who are passionate about learning and who wish to help direct the path of their own education. The IGSS will be a challenging opportunity for students and staff to examine connections within and across disciplines and to develop creative and experiential courses of study.  The IGSS will be driven by individuals whose open-mindedness inspires the spirit of inquiry, whose personal involvement is fueled by compassion, and whose convictions lead them to be responsibly active, both locally and globally, in the world outside the walls of New Trier.
