Our family's current expereince with the staff for special education and the principal is not to our satisfactory. We found this staff to be very difficult in including us with all aspect of our special need's child who has Autism. Parents should do a prior visit of this school (it's a parents right to do this), and revisit (just observe) so you may get a better understanding of what your child is learning in the classes. We encourage your family to be active in the education of your child, as parent we found communication to be very difficult and at time rude. Know you rights in special education is very key if you don't know that already.
At Global Co. they teach you many ways to prepare for college, how to get a job, choosing the write career or choice, 7 helpful habits of mind, being confident in presentations, work, and self to marketing,becoming bilingual, and fso much more. We have teachers and other students all around us everday before,after school and even at lunch to help you or teach you something new. When i think back from this year as a freshman, we are kinda like AVID but wit personality. Now we may not have big rooms, or newer stuff but i don't think that should change peoples mind about coming to global because by being apart of a small school you get more one on one with the teachers who are like devoted to teaching!
Global Connections has created a learning environment for students to cultivate their ideas, stretch their imaginations, and show each student that he/she can be anything they want to be. I've met students who, during their freshmen year, didn't even consider a college education. But by their junior year were focused like laser beams on which college/university they're preparing to apply for admission. Our daughter is a sophomore at Global and chose to stay at Global rather than transfer to other schools in the Highline School district. We love the teachers, staff, and administrators.
