The School of Global Studies at Terry Sanford High School is a choice program designed for success in college and in the 21st century with a curriculum that is interdisciplinary, interconnected, and focused on global relationships – allowing all students to gain a heightened awareness of current issues facing our international community while developing a global perspective and foundation of knowledge in which to better understand our world today and have a positive effect tomorrow.

Deborah Vajner, Director:

The School of Global Studies consists of three major components: Academic Excellence, Global Awareness, and Cultural Activities.

Academic, Behavioral and Attendance Excellence

  • Students will maintain an overall B average, with no grade lower than a C.
  • Students will be enrolled in Honors or AP level courses where available.
  • Students will conduct themselves with a high standard of behavior.
  • Students will attend school with a minimum number of absences.

Global Awareness / Community Volunteerism

  • Students will learn about our world through participation in cultural and academic activities, and through involvement in our Global Symposiums at FTS.
  • Students will show responsibility to their community by participating in worthwhile volunteer activities.

Social and Cultural Activities

  • Students will incorporate proper social skills into their conduct in order to be prepared for the competitive world of college admissions and for the professional life that follows.
  • Students will take part in opportunities that broaden their experiences with music, art, and theatre.

Participation in the School of Global Studies requires students to complete 20-40 hours of volunteer service yearly through the organized volunteer program at Terry Sanford High School.

In Humanities, seniors are required to complete a Senior Project in which the student explores and researches an important global issue.  They will produce a tangible product, write a research paper, and present their findings.
