Partner Schools Network

Launched in 2008 with 12 schools, today, the Partner Schools Network includes over 100 schools and reaches over 40,000 students. As part of this network, schools embrace Facing History's core themes as foundational to their schools' mission and weave Facing History content and teaching strategies throughout the school: in classes, advisory groups, faculty meetings, and school community activities.

Partner Schools Network schools seek to engage students with rigorous interdisciplinary content and methodology that promotes academic skills as well as empathy and ethical awareness.

Common Principles of PSN Schools

  • We value the complexities of identity and combat prejudice in our school community.
  • We examine choices of the past and their legacies to inform our choices today.
  • We integrate intellectual rigor, emotional engagement, and ethical reflection.
  • We foster dialogue, empathy, and civic participation.
