Melba High School has received national recognition for excellence in global education from 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. Melba High School was one of a select group of high schools recognized across the United States for the 2013-14 school year.
“Melba High School has shown an outstanding commitment to offering a global education,” said Dan Sodervall, President of EF High School Exchange Year. “By welcoming exchange students into the classrooms, Melba High School has created new and unique learning opportunities not just for the exchange students, but for the American students and faculty as well.”
“My experience at Melba High School has been amazing,” said EF student Thies Flammann from Germany. “I was able to participate in Football and Baseball, which is something I would not have done in Germany. One of the things I appreciate most about my experience at Melba High School is all the friendly students and staff. I will never forget my time in Melba, Idaho, and I know I will always be welcome here.”
Local Regional exchange coordinator Ann Roe added, “We thank Melba High School for welcoming this year’s students from around the globe. The community and visiting students shared an unforgettable experience thanks to the generosity of Melba High School administration, teachers, students and families.”
Headquartered in Cambridge, Mass., EF High School Exchange Year 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 High School Exchange Year has matched more than 100,000 enthusiastic students from around the world with caring host families across the United States.
