Episode 12: Globally-Minded Students at Vista Magnet Middle School
On this episode we talk with Steve Post, Principal of Vista Magnet Middle School. Vista Magnet has a rich learning environment, with an emphasis on math and science, as well as being an International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme school, which Steve explains a bit in our conversation.
The IB program helps to develop students into global citizens, finding connections between their local school environment and other spaces around the world. This global-mindedness is a key difference-maker in the learning process, and also contributes to the school’s tradition of students involving themselves in a service project.
VMMS students have also, for the past two years, won a contest to have an experiment run on the International Space Station, making the school's reach not just global, but galactic!
