Round Square is a world-wide association of schools on five continents sharing unique and ambitious goals. Students attending Round Square schools make a strong commitment, beyond academic excellence, to personal development and responsibility.
The Round Square approach promotes six IDEALS of learning: Internationalism, Democracy, Environment, Adventure, Leadership and Service. These are incorporated into the curriculum throughout all member schools.
Access to the Round Square network affords member schools the opportunity to arrange local and international student and teacher exchanges on a regular basis between their schools. Pupils also have the opportunity to participate in local and international community service projects and conferences
Tasks tackled through the community projects include building schools, classrooms and community centres; building clean water systems for remote hill-tribes or creating and maintaining trails in National Parks. Local materials are used, and teams always work with local people ensuring that they take ownership of the work once it has been completed
Our teams currently work in Thailand, Cambodia, Peru, Nicaragua, India, Kenya, South Africa and Romania.
In 2014 the Round Square International Conference was hosted by the Round Square South Asia and Gulf region across two schools in India and Jordan. In 2015 the hosting moves to the Australasia and East Asia region and the International Conference will be held in Singapore.
