DC Public Schools International Programs
DCPS students have the unique opportunity of living and learning in one of America’s most internationally diverse cities: home to 174 embassies, hundreds of international organizations, and a variety of global communities.
We believe it is critical for our students to gain a global perspective, as we prepare them to be successful graduates in an increasingly international economy.
We also believe it is important to engage our educators in the international community, offering opportunities to expand their understanding of education cultures around the world.
Through increased exposure to international programs, our students and our educators gain a diverse global perspective, which serves to enliven and enrich the opportunities at DC Public Schools.
DC Public Schools’ International Programs will:
- Provide a variety of challenging programs;
- Recognize and reward our educators with innovative opportunities;
- Compliment rigorous curriculum that gives all students meaningful options for life;
- Provide schools with support and resources;
- Partner with international communities.
If you have a program you would like to offer to the students and educators of DC Public Schools, please complete the DCPS International Programs Request Form. Your request will be reviewed by a committee, and a response sent within 5 business days. Thank you for your interest in DC Public Schools.
