The Center for Global Studies at Brien McMahon high school offers an internationally minded curriculum, as their motto suggests, "Creating a global society. The school climate is welcoming and extremely diverse, students are open minded and friendly. There are fantastic study abroad opportunities offered for the three areas associated with the study languages, China, Japan, and Qatar, as well as service trips. There is at least one sister school in each of these regions, and CGS annually hosts students from these schools and performers from all cultures to engage students in internationally-minded

My overall experience at The Center for Global was great. The faculty really make you feel at home and it's a different experience than normal highschools. The school educates you to be more open-minded about other's opinions and about the world in general in which you would not normally learn about other countries. One not so thing is about helping other students stay on task with their education which was a struggle for me yet, I learned from my mistakes. I wished though that when they have study tours they're making sure if the student needs help on catching up work and doing well in class after missing 2 weeks of school when you go on a study tour to Japan, China, or the Middle East. And another thing to add that it’s a magnet school in which connects to a normal high school in which allows Center for Global students to have access to many opportunities and resources. In general, as a Junior, my high school has been satisfactory.
I attended 4 years and it was the best experience. Loved the teachers, administrators and students. School is very diverse and there something for everyone whether it's sports or studies. Enjoyed every pot luck I attended, gave you an opportunity to be part of something cultural with the different dishes but also to interact with students from other countries. Center for global studies was one of the best decision I ever made.
