Head of School One selected for prestigious Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad Program

Head of School One Jennifer Borman is one of 16 educators selected from around the country to participate in this year’s Fulbright-Hays Seminar in China.  Throughout July, she will visit the cities of Beijing, Xi’an, Chongqing and Shanghai.  She will tour schools, teacher training programs, and arts academies as well as visit museums, temples and archeological sites.  Fulbright participants will also engage with a wide range of experts on Chinese history, politics, economics and culture. After the seminar’s conclusion, Ms. Borman, will create a curriculum project to implement at School One.

“I’m tremendously intrigued by China,” says Ms. Borman, “and eager to deepen School One’s international focus.”  School One is an independent, art-intensive high school located on the East Side of Providence.  In 2012, School One began enrolling a small cohort of students from China. “The Fulbright offers School One an amazing opportunity to facilitate new ways of learning from our Chinese students and to fully integrate them into our school community.”

Fully funded, the Seminars Abroad Program is administered by the U.S. Department of Education’s International and Foreign Language Education office, Office of Postsecondary Education, in cooperation with the U. S. Department of State.  Borman joins educators from Texas, New York, Florida, and California.
