Educating for tomorrow's global leaders.

At DCPS, we believe that all students, regardless of background or circumstance, will graduate prepared for success in college, career and life.  A key component of this success demands that DCPS students graduate as globally competent individuals; the goal of the DCPS Global Education program is to cultivate this global competence in all students.  A globally competent DCPS graduate is an inquisitive, informed and active global citizen who investigates the world, recognizes perspectives, communicates ideas, and takes action.

What We Do


DCPS believes that all students can be global citizens and that all teachers can be global educators. Global education is a perspective and pedagogy available across grades, wards, and content areas. Whether a second grade visual arts classroom, seventh grade World History classroom, or afterschool enrichment program, there are many ways to utilize the rich global resources of the city to ensure that all students across all wards have equitable access to global perspectives and opportunities. The DCPS Global Education team works together with partners, content areas and school leaders to develop aligned, innovative, and exceptional global programs for students.
