Model UN is a perfect fit for BASIS Independent students. It draws on a number of very different but overlapping skill sets, and requires its participants to process and understand all sides of a problem or issue. Beyond the traditional liberal arts curriculum taught at most American schools, BASIS Independent students take some additional, less common classes - including Logic, Economics, Connections, Engineering, Latin, Mandarin, and Physical Geography - all alongside students from around the country and around the globe. So, when our students took their first steps into the real United Nations Headquarters on the Upper East Side of Manhattan for the Change the World Model UN Conference earlier this year, they weren’t in a foreign place; they were home.
Thank you to Ms. Tenaglia for supporting this big win for our students! Leave a comment here:
