Our school culture is anchored to the belief system that each student will be respectful, responsible, safe, and kind. Students' efforts and successes are celebrated at Gardner.

Gardner International Magnet has an immersive international studies program based on Global Education, utilizes Project-Based Learning, and is aligned with the 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development.


What is Global Education?

Global Education is an approach to learning concepts and skills needed to succeed in a world that is increasingly interconnected and diverse. Global Education is integrated throughout the curriculum and taught within the context of project-based inquiries.  Within Global Education, there is an emphasis on understanding the perspectives of others and examining issues of individuals, the local community, the nation, and the world community.
