2. What is high school like in American?

          Life at Public High School with IES Student Exchange : The American approach to high school education is unique. Most schools combine a wide range of academic subjects with social activities and sports. Schools also emphasize active learning with many lessons and class discussions. All exchange students are required to take U.S. history and English both semesters. Take advantage of this fantastic change to study. Your local representative can explain your options and help you choose your subjects.

          School sport games are often a big public party, where teachers, parents and students root for the team. The games are a show in themselves with entertainment and naturally the famous "Cheerleaders". Typical sports at many schools include : Football, Basketball, Swimming, Track and Field, Baseball, Aerobics, Tennis, Hockey and Wrestling

3. What is an American Host Family?

          Thai students will live with a volunteer host family. They are warm giving people who are interested in learning about your culture and want to share their own traditions with their new international "BRING THE WORLD TO YOUR HOME" program.

          You and your host family can have a wonderful relationship through lively discussions. You will be treated as part of the family-not a guest. When you leave, our hope for you is that you will all feel that you have a "second family" and will probably keep in contact for the rest of your life. Many of our students and host families visit cach other through out the years

4. Who will be the volunteer host family?

          Our non-profit organizations guarantee your placement with a carefully selected host family. An organization staff member interviews the entire family in their home. The family completes a detailed application, and references are checked and verified.

          The staff of the U.S. organizations carefully reads through your application and considers your interests. Then your application is sent to international coordinators who have the best possibilities for meeting your wishes. They show your application to suitable host families, and ultimately your family chooses you.

5. If there are any problems, who can I contact?

          Our non-profit organizations have a network of Area Representatives throughout the country. These area reps are a very important part of the program. The local international coordinator, lives near you and your host family. Also you can rely on a support system which has a 24 Hour Toll Free Service. In each region there is an administrator who has many years of experience working with international students. We have an extentive network so that you and your parents can obtain all the support and information you wish before, during and after your High School year.
