At Curry, teachers develop holistic learning and international mindedness in students by actively engaging students in each subject in the six Global Contexts. These areas serve as “lenses” through which students explore ideas, investigate connections across and between subject areas, and apply their knowledge to real world problems.

Students will explore identity; beliefs and values; personal, physical, mental, social and spiritual health; human relationships including families, friends, communities and cultures; what it means to be human.
