Support for The National WWII Museum’s education programs

Welcome to The National WWII Museum’s Partner Schools site, an innovative collaboration between America’s only national museum dedicated to WWII and a growing alliance of schools committed to improving their generation by honoring the Greatest Generation.

The Partner Schools program is a way to involve students across the United States in hands-on learning about WWII, to establish connections between schools doing WWII projects, and to support the Museum’s educational programming. The Partner Schools program encourages teachers, students, and school administrators to join the Museum in celebrating the generation that won the war while exploring and expressing the values that the “Greatest Generation” carried with them into battle: Teamwork, Optimism, Courage, and Sacrifice.

The National WWII Museum encourages schools to undertake class-wide or school-wide projects that provide students with in-depth WWII experiences beyond their usual classroom experience. Through organizing and hosting WWII veterans’ appreciation events, Partner School students learn more about themselves and their communities as they learn more about WWII. And by choosing to support The National WWII Museum, students become part of the vital national effort to keep the history and lessons of WWII alive for the next generation.
