Week Without Walls
We believe that local experiences beyond the classroom that are experiential, challenging, and inclusive serve our students as they develop a greater understanding of themselves and others. The Week Without Walls (WWW) program promotes international mindedness in which our students see how they are connected beyond the school campus to the global community and the responsibility that comes with that connection.
