New Friends

New Friends

In February 2013, Gahanna Middle School East welcomed their Chinese friends from Hefei No.45 Middle School. Over 40 students and teachers visited their sister school near Columbus, Ohio.

Through the efforts of IPERC Foundation, Gahanna Middle School East and Hefei No.45 Middle School had already built a strong and positive partnership. During their stay, the Chinese students joined the classes at Gahanna Middle School East and had the opportunity to experience an American education.

In addition, they had fun staying with their host families, participating in family activities, and experiencing life in an American household. The two sister schools shared their teaching resources and exchanged gifts. The students and faculty look forward to their next visit, either in China or the United States.
