The world today functions as an interconnected net of exchange and globalized information. In order to properly perform their roles, educators around the world have attempted to form citizens under the idea of a single international community. This paper aims to discuss the needs, struggles, and important responsibility of foreign schools in the formation of global citizens today. This study looks at the past, present and future perspectives of the installation of international schools around the globe. Technology, instructional practices for a diverse group of learners, besides the provision of state-of-the-art facilities have been the challenges of many international schools. However, the main purpose of a foreign school should be the supply of an international atmosphere where learning about other cultures and countries becomes a daily reality in the classroom. This paper looks at the different angles involving the installation, improvement and spread of international schools globally and their role as creators of world-citizens.
