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.

STEM Night a Success!
On October 1, 2014 over 50 students and parents attended a STEM Academy Night in the HHS auditorium. The guest speaker was Purdue University- The theme was centered around preparing students for careers in the 21st century. Mr. Ed Roberts, the Dean of STEM Science and Technology, kicked off the evening by defining the vision of the future for the academy and the students enrolled in it. Mr. Lienhard presented information about NAF, the National Academy Foundation. The STEM Academy will offer a NAF certified curriculum in the IT Pathway. Kris Wirth from Purdue presented information regarding the educational opportunities and career achievements available to STEM students in the global marketplace. Did you know: More CEOs of the top “Fortune 500″ companies have engineering, not business degrees? Jobs in the STEM fields pay more than their non-STEM counterparts! Stay tuned for the next event coming soon.
