The International Student Program is nothing short of amazing.

“It is a great opportunity for our students to connect with students from across the world in a setting where they are all very comfortable. On the days when our visitors set up cultural displays and exhibits, it is fun to watch our students try the games and activities, attempt to speak the language and truly embrace the “new” cultural experience. The program is rewarding in so many ways. What a great way to invite the world into our schools.”

“It was an incredible experience. I learned so much about life, people, me. I saw so much and met lots of awesome people, who I will never forget. If I could live these past months one more time… I would.”
