LSW receives Education First Global Education Excellence Award
Lee’s Summit West High School has received national recognition for excellence in global education for the 2018-2019 school year from Education First (EF) High School Exchange Year, the leader in high school exchange.
The EF High School Exchange Year Global Education Excellence Award is presented annually to high schools that demonstrate an extraordinary commitment to international understanding and global awareness.
“Lee’s Summit West has shown an outstanding commitment to offering a global education,” said Bob Fredette, President of EF High School Exchange Year. “By welcoming exchange students into the classrooms, Lee’s Summit West has created new and unique learning opportunities for not just the exchange students, but for the American students and faculty as well.”
This year, LSW welcomed six EF High School Exchange Year exchange students. These students became an integral part of the school’s academic and extracurricular life and involved the greater community in the exchange experience.
“We thank Lee’s Summit West for welcoming this year’s students from around the globe. The community and visiting students shared an unforgettable experience thanks to the generosity of LSW administration, teachers, students and families,” said local exchange coordinator Cindy Chamberlain.
