The concept of Global Sister Schools began as the result of a USA high school's engineering class field trip to Honduras. On this trip they served a community that was in a state of celebration, as they championed the graduation of their very first high school student (in the history of their community)! This was an eye opening discovery.

This level allows teachers and classrooms that cannot connect daily but would like to get involved in specific lessons and or topics.
Teachers from around the world can connect their lessons and students through a video library. Teachers can record their lessons and upload them to the website creating a course specific library.
