Akoyikoyi School was recently recognized by the organization Teaching Tolerance as a Mix-It-Up Model school, a true testament to the positive attitude we work hard to cultivate at the school. For the past three years, Akoyikoyi has participated in the Mix-It-Up Lunch program, a event designed to bring people from different cultures together in the spirit of breaking down barriers between people of different backgrounds to allow students the opportunity to see how many commonalities we all share. We have partnered with Xavier High School for this event as students from Yap, Palau, Pohnpei, Phillipines, Kosrae, Kiribati, Republic of Marshall Islands, Korea, and Chuuk have come to speak to the youth at Akoyikoyi about the customs and culture of their home.
We are truly honored to be one of only 100 schools to have received this recognition, and one of only two international schools, the other located in Israel. Teaching children tolerance is something that we value very highly and we will continue striving to teach our students the value of respecting people of all nationalities and backgrounds so that we can provide the safest, most positive learning experience possible.
