Each year, more than 60,000 high school and university students participate in “Model United Nations” simulations around the world. The students learn to prepare and present research on key international issues and learn different nation-states’ opinions and concerns about those issues.
At Sharpstown International School, we offer four different levels of Model UN classes to students. These students get an opportunity to learn research, writing, and public speaking skills as they discuss some of the most pressing issues around the world. In addition, our Model UN program travels to multiple Model UN simulations, including out of town trips, to compete against other middle and high school students.
In early March, a number of students traveled to Washington D.C. for a national Model United Nations competition. The students represented SIS very well and we are proud of their accomplishments at this national level. This was the first time in three years that students were able to fundraise enough to participate in this competition which featured dozens of schools! Two students won "Verbal Accomodation" and one of our representatives won the highest honor possible, "Best Delegate" on her committee!! Congratulations to Mr. Sigren, Mr. Johnson, and these students.
