Three Hillsboro High School students have returned to school after the summer of a lifetime!
Adam Simmons, Noah Simmons, and Morgan Hyde just landed back in the States, having spent two weeks in China. They went over as part of the Confucius Institute Summer Bridge Program.
The Confucius Classroom at Hillsboro High gives students experience with Chinese language and culture, taught by teachers recruited from China. In fact, Hillsboro has two brand new Chinese teachers this year, including one shared with JT Moore Middle School!
These three East-West scholars met with representatives of the Confucius Institute Friday afternoon to talk about their experiences in China.
Adam and Noah recently transferred to Hillsboro from a local private school because they were seeking a "better education" in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. Morgan is in the Academy of International Business. All three of them have said they want to go back to China and spend more time learning Chinese.
