The Round Square, an international network of schools in 50 countries, provides members with the chance to collaborate and share learning experiences with peers around the globe through conferences, community service projects, and exchanges. This year, Holy Innocents Episcopal School in Sandy Springs, one of the country’s largest Episcopal schools with more than 1,300 students, joined the network, making it the only member in Georgia and only one of three in the Southeast.
As part of the program, teachers and students from the upper school traveled to South Africa to take part in Round Square’s annual conference. Round Square’s world-wide approach matches the objectives of the Global Studies program offered in the HIES upper school.
“Part of our mission is to develop in students a sense of service to the world community,” said Erik Vincent, director of global studies. “By becoming a Round Square member school, we can uphold our mission and work to challenge students to learn about different global issues.” hies.org
