Creating effective, meaningful international partnerships is a major component of a comprehensive education for today’s students. Knowledge of different cultures and perspectives provides a richer and deeper educational experience for students growing up in a world brought closer together through modern technology and up to the minute communications. University School at East Tennessee State University and Colegio Americano from Guayaquil, Ecuador are two schools who embraced the myriad of challenges that accompany the process and have successfully established a global partnership that has provided for each school opportunities to visit one another, share ideas and establish friendships and relationships between students and adults. This article outlines some of the highlights of the partnership and addresses some of the challenges faced with establishing this type of program for students.
