In November 2020, Fairgreen International School received recognition as a Common Sense® school by the namesake nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids and families thrive in a world of media and technology. Led by the efforts of Design Teacher, Mr. Samuel Landete, Fairgreen
is one of only a handful of schools in the region that holds this distinction. "We're honored to be recognized as a Common Sense® School," said Graeme Scott, Fairgreen's Director. "By preparing our students to use technology safely and responsibly, we are providing them an opportunity to build lifelong habits to help them succeed in a tech-driven world."
Fairgreen has demonstrated its commitment to taking a whole-community approach to preparing its students to think critically and use technology responsibly to learn and create. Fairgreen implements Common Sense® Education's innovative and research-based digital citizenship resources, which were created in collaboration with researchers from Project Zero, led by Howard Gardner at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and are grounded in real issues faced by students and teachers. The resources teach students, educators, and parents tangible skills related to internet safety, protecting online reputations and personal privacy, media balance, managing online relationships, and media literacy. amazing energy from the sun!
