Bonus photo: Chinese exchange students welcomed to Milton HS

 

 

Milton High School has really rolled out the welcome mat for a group of 10 exchange students and a teacher from China.

I got to meet them Wednesday, and it was really a lot of fun hearing first-hand about the differences between the Chinese education system and the U.S. one:

  • At Heibei Middle School, the average class size is about 60 students, the teacher said.
  • There’s no school dances in China. They have evening activities, but they all have an academic/cultural aspect to them, like art, music lessons or calligraphy.
  • Chinese students go to school year-round

And for anyone who didn’t know that Milton was hosting the students, the high school literally had a sign posted outside:
