International Education

International Education refers to student or teacher exchanges and visiting teacher programs. The exchange of people—both students and teachers—is one of the most powerful tools for building strong relations among people the world over.

Washington State considers basic education to be “an evolving program of instruction that is intended to provide students with the opportunity to become responsible and respectful global citizens.” Washington State K–12 Learning Standards in World Languages, Environmental and Sustainability Education, and Social Studies address major global themes, providing students the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills needed in today’s interconnected world.
