The International Studies Magnet Program at North Cobb High School emphasizes exposure to various elements of different disciplines related to global cultures. It's designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge needed to address international issues and adapt to the interconnected world of the 21st century. 

On today's episode of The Inside Scoop, David Owen interviews Program Coordinator James Auld. The goal of the program is to provide an advanced educational experience for students emphasizing the development of global perspectives on politics, culture, and science. Students in the International Studies program will also gain leadership skills through extracurricular activities, service learning, and a senior project and presentation.
