Wiley's International Studies Magnet Program attracts students from many different countries. These face-to-face experiences with other cultures make global studies come alive. Doors of understanding open wide as students learn about varied cultures, learn to speak different languages, and learn to use technologies important in our global society.
The program is designed to develop understanding of major systems (technological, communications and cultural), which influence the condition of our global village. The international magnet gives students an opportunity to individualize their education. Students receive a solid core of instruction in essential subjects. Elective classes offer a variety of learning options and experiences. Kindergarten through fifth grade students may participate in as many as eight elective classes each year. As one of their elective courses, students may choose from any array of five foreign languages: French, Spanish, German, Japanese and Chinese.
We value Play. Passion. Purpose. Wiley International Studies Magnet Elementary School staff embraces Tony Wagner’s principles as we focus on guiding our students to fulfill our mission and vision. While we strive to educate the whole child in partnership with family and community, one goal is to instill the joy of learning as students become interdependent lifelong learners.
