Partner Schools Network

The Innovative Schools Network is now called Partner Schools Network!

The Facing History Partner Schools Network is made up of schools that embrace Facing History's core themes as foundational to their schools' mission. Schools in the network weave Facing History content and teaching strategies throughout the school–in humanities cIlasses, advisory groups, faculty meetings, and activities with the broader community. These schools seek to engage students with rigorous interdisciplinary content and methodology that promotes academic skills as well as empathy and ethical awareness. The Innovative Schools Network was launched in 2008 with 12 schools. Today, the Partner Schools Network includes over 80 schools and reaches over 40,000 students.
