Haverhill High School welcomes Soha Yawar- A YES Exchange Student from Pakistan
Haverhill High School is proud to host Soha Yawar, a 15 year old student from Peshawar, Pakistan. She is here for a year on the US Department of State Youth Exchange and Study (YES) program. The program is funded by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational & Cultural Affairs (ECA) to provide scholarships for high school students from countries with significant Muslim populations to study for one academic year in the U.S.. Soha is being hosted by Amy and Paul Miller from Haverhill.
As a young woman, and one of 5 children, she is very aware of the good fortune and future opportunities that participating on an exchange can bring. Of the 30,000 students who applied, only 108 were chosen to participate in the YES Program. After high school, Soha plans to apply to Harvard University and study dentistry. She is very bright and outgoing by nature and we wish her well!
If you see Soha in school or around town, please give her a warm welcome: Assalam-O-Alaikum- or “Peace be upon you”.
HHS Signs Membership Agreement with National Academy Foundation
HHS Launches a new IT Pathway (NAF Certified Career Academy) to be offered in the Fall of 2015. The NAF IT Pathway will reside within the HHS STEM Academy. The Design Team is comprised of HHS Teachers Lance Gomes and Thomas Lienhard, who will also be teaching the two flagship classes as well as Brian Nagel- Technology Facilitator at the HPS iSchool, Victoria Kelley- Career Academy Coordinator and Internship Coordinator, Lisa Hunt. The NAF IT Pathway will combine rigorous academic content, provide real school to work and internship experiences, connect our school to industry through an active advisory board and prepare our HHS students for careers in the lucrative STEM fields.

Many top industries recognize NAF graduates. In committing to NAFTrack Certified Hiring, the initiatives’ founding partners — AT&T, Cisco, EMC, HP, JPMorgan Chase, Juniper Networks, KPMG LLP, Verizon, and Xerox — promise to give special consideration to job applicants who, as high school graduates, earned a NAF credential. and have recently announced preferential interviews, pre interview assistance and the potential for increased opening salary offers.

HHS To Host German GAPP Exchange Students
The students and their The German American Partnership Program (GAPP) is a non-profit high school exchange program between schools in Germany and the United States, sponsored by the German Foreign Office and by the US Department of State. The main objective of the Program is the integration of students into the everyday life of host families and into the classroom activities of host schools to provide them with a coherent intercultural experience. In June of this year, HHS students with Mrs. Simblaris and Mr. Lienhard traveled to Karlsruhe Germany for our half of the exchange experience. This is our turn to host. You can read more at hhsgapp2014.wordpress.com
The students arrived today (Friday 10/24) and we had a great welcome party ready for them. The students then proceeded to class for the day with their host students. Please welcome the students when you see them!!
