Schools honored with this annual award have partnered with AFS in a variety of ways to foster global citizenship through intercultural learning - both inside and outside of the classroom - from hosting international students, sending students abroad, and working with AFS-USA to incorporate intercultural and experiential learning opportunities into their curriculum.

“We’re so thankful and proud to work in educational partnership with these schools,” says Tonya Muro, the Director of School Outreach at AFSUSA. “Today’s AFS is so much more than international educational exchange. Together with schools, AFS is bringing global competencies and key 21st century skills to students, teachers, and the greater community.”

Plymouth High School is hosting 12 AFS students from 12 different countries: Zeliha Kilek, Turkey; Sara Martinez, Spain; Ingvild Konglevoll, Norway; Gabriel Guirec, France; Andres Constantino, Chile; Mariana Reynosa, Dominican Republic; Johanna Pahnke, Germany; Mikko Luiksiala, Finland; Nadezhda Mukhaleva, Russia; Anne Aziz, Egypt; Cecelia Conslavo, Italy, and Ryo Sakuma, Japan.

The Plymouth H.S. AFS chapter is co-chaired by Ann Weeden and Clare Sedlacek. Both are also experienced host parents and their families are again hosting this year.
