For two weeks in April, Sam Cleary, a teacher at St. Stephen’s College in Australia, visited the upper school to teach and observe classes as part of Harker’s teacher exchange program with the school.
Cleary observed classes in English, history and forensics, and taught a number of English and forensics classes himself.
Harker prides itself on building progressive academic and cultural partnerships between institutions around the world to provide meaningful experiences for students at all grade levels, preparing them to be true global citizens.
As part of Harker’s global education program, upper school students have the opportunity to travel to Switzerland to practice their French and Australia to hone their leadership skills. Harker also hosts several short- and long-term exchange students from various countries including Germany, Australia, Switzerland and Japan. Harker further hosts visiting teachers from China, Japan and Australia.
