Cobb School offers Globally Focused Curriculum

 

“Life in the 21st century means adapting to the most hyper-connected, interdependent world we’ve ever seen. We need professionals with solid cultural knowledge and (foreign) language skills.”
–U.S. SECRETARY OF EDUCATION, ARNIE DUNCAN

 

One program up to that challenge is the North Cobb School of International Studies (NCSIS) a globally-focused magnet high school. It’s open to any Cobb student meeting the competitive entrance requirements. Once admitted, the classes are focused on world history, international studies, and the high-need languages of Mandarin, Japanese and Arabic (among others). Global travel is a hallmark, with trips offered twice-annually and a summer excursion to China through the Confucius Institute.

An example of the school’s rigor can also be found in the multi-year science and social studies advanced
academics sequence, which culminates in a capstone course in AP Comparative Government and Politics and AP Macroeconomics. NCSIS’ sciences program builds skills in biology, chemistry, and environmental sciences in order to prepare for and Advanced Scientific Research course where magnet students undertake a fully-vetted research project in an area of both personal and international significance. Students develop the project during 11th grade and present publicly early senior year.

International studies are considered “vital to our national security.” In fact, a “National Security Education Board” is overseen by the Secretary of Defense. Its mission is to address the need for experts in critical languages and regions. Additionally, the Dept. of Education awarded $64 million to universities for international studies; the Fulbright Scholarship has a “critical language” program; and Wal-Mart sends executives for courses on international relations. Michael Eskew, CEO of United Parcel Services established a “global trade curricula” for employees. “We need to do a better job of this, especially languages like Chinese,” he states.

How important is NCSIS to the region’s economic development? David Connell, President of the Cobb
Chamber states “Cobb County has become a home for many international firms. Global companies are
attracted to programs like the North Cobb School of International Studies, as they offer a prospective
company a reason to consider locating here. It offers us a competitive advantage.”

It’s not surprising that NCSIS has the number one ranked Model United Nations team in the state, one
of the Top 50 in the U.S. Additionally, multiple magnet students are selected each year for highly  competitive programs such as the Governor’s Honors Program, Duke TIPS and the U.S. State Department’s scholarship.

According to John Laughner, Spokesperson for Magnet Schools of America, “There is strong evidence
that students who attend magnet schools have higher rates of academic achievement, and higher  graduation rates, than those in non-magnet schools. These students are more likely to have higher levels of critical thinking skills, an ability to adopt multiple perspectives, a diminished likelihood for acceptance of stereotypes and to develop more cross-racial friendships.”

The NCSIS program consists of just 475 students in grades 9-12, giving it a true sense of “family.” Over
600 prospective students attended the most recent open house.

For more information about the North Cobb School of International Studies, contact Mr. David  Stephenson, Magnet Program Coordinator by emailing: David1.Stephenson@cobbk12.org or 770-975-6685.

Featuring more than 30 artists and craftsmen, a raffle, silent auction and story time for children, the event promises family fun and hope for a family in need of it. Admission is free.
