This year, 2024, Hingham High School is ecstatic to announce that it has been chosen by the American Field Service as the “Global School of the Year”. The American Field Service awards the “Global School of the Year” based on the district of the schools. The award is meant to recognize schools with immense amounts of inclusion and the ability to captivate global ideas to their students. The American Field Service’s goal is to create global citizens, and they feel that school and the education system is a great way to do so. So, by awarding Hingham High School with this award, the American Field Service is recognizing our educators for their ability to go above and beyond to incorporate intercultural learning and global commitment in everyday scenarios. 

In order to win this award, Hingham High school was likely nominated or applied, and clearly the American Field Service recognized Hingham High school as one of the schools who excelled in preparing students to be active participants in the global community. Sophomore Hannah Mello explained, “I am so excited our school got this award. I truly feel that being a student at Hingham High School has really made me more aware and inclusive of the entire global society, and I am sure I will be an active member of this society thanks to my school.” 

2One of the reasons in which Hingham High School was able to earn this award was due to its stellar international clubs and opportunities to interact on a global level. For example, The Student Council at Hingham High school is very versatile. Sophomore Tessa Grossman expresses, “I think being a part of Student Council has not only made me more in touch with my school, but also the community as a whole. There are so many opportunities to volunteer and participate which are most definitely training me to be an active global community member”.

One Example of this is SEMASC which is the “Southeastern Massachusetts Association of Student Councils”. SEMASC offers seasonal conferences where students can sign up and interact with citizens outside their immediate community. The students get to practice interaction and participation with others and also their leadership skills. Since the Hingham High School student council is very interactive, many students really enjoy this experience and use it to its full potential.

In the end, due to the abundance of opportunities for students at Hingham High School to learn to be better global citizens and become more informed on all cultures and aspects of the world, the American Field Service definitely chose the right school.
