Please sign up with Sensei to inform him of your intentions to tutor or to receive tutoring!



Last year, and for 3 previous years, our Level 3 & 4 students participated in the 2016-2017 Global Classmates Program sponsored by Kizuna Across Cultures.  We were paired up with Misaki High School in Ehime Prefecture (on Shikoku Island) to discuss a variety of topics of common interest online using Schoology as our platform for exchange.  We exchanged gifts by mail and discussed topics online, ranging from school and community events to slang/buzzword expressions.  The students learned a lot from their peers across the ocean!

Although we will not be participating in this program in 2017-2018, we hope to reapply for 2018-2019, once we've fully transitioned to our new schedule system.
