Issue Date: May 22, 2013
Coleman High School received national recognition for excellence in global education from EF Foundation for Foreign Study, the leader in high school exchange.
The EF Foundation Global Education Excellence Award is presented annually to high schools that demonstrate an extraordinary commitment to international understanding and global awareness. Coleman High School was one of a select group of high schools recognized across the United States for the 2012-13 school year.
Coleman High School has shown an outstanding commitment to offering a global education, said Dan Sodervall, President of EF Foundation. By welcoming exchange students into the classrooms, Coleman High School has created new and unique learning opportunities not just for the exchange students, but for the American students and faculty as well.
This year, Coleman High School welcomed Nicola Travaglini from Switzerland. Not only was he accepted into the school, he also became an integral part of the schools academic and extracurricular life, involving the greater community in the exchange experience.
My experience at Coleman High School has been amazing, said Nicola. I was able to participate in cross country, basketball and baseball, which is something I would not have done in Switzerland. One of the things I appreciate most about my experience at Coleman High School is how friendly everyone is. I will never forget my time in Coleman and I know I will always be welcome here.
Local exchange coordinators, Tom and Ann Cook, added, We thank Coleman High School for welcoming Nicola. The community and Nicola shared an unforgettable experience thanks to the generosity of the administration, teachers, students and families.
The Cooks express their thank you to the Richard and Caroline Brazeau family for opening their home to Nicola and helping him experience the lifestyle of an American teenager.
Headquartered in Cambridge, MA, EF Foundation for Foreign Study has been committed to promoting international understanding and global awareness for over 30 years. The organization brings more students to the United States each year than any other high school exchange program. Since 1979, EF Foundation has matched more than 100,000 enthusiastic students from around the world with caring host families across the United States.
