Students from Toluca Mexico Being Hosted
Six high school students and a teacher from Toluca, Mexico’s Tec de Monterrey Multicultural Program will spend three weeks in Fort Worth, hosted by Trinity Valley School Nov. 25 – Dec. 13. TVS is one of several Ambassador Schools this year hosting student delegations from Fort Worth’s Sister Cities.
Trinity Valley School’s Director of Global Initiatives, Dr. Michael Roemer, has planned an enriched program. “Hosting this exchange helps our students learn the value of diversity and seek commonalities that tie us together,” said Dr. Roemer. Trinity Valley School’s Global Initiatives Program is committed to educating K-12 students to become aware of and engaged with people around the world.
The Toluca students will also take part in educational programs at the Botanical Research Institute of Texas, and cultural tours are planned to the Stockyards, Cowboys Stadium, the Amon Carter Museum, and the Kimbell Art Museum. The students will also spend time in class with Trinity Valley School students, teach some of the younger students about their culture, and take part in the school’s Trojan Outdoor Experience (TOE) program.
The goal of the exchange is to provide an international experience for the students that will inspire global understanding. The experience will also provide opportunities for the Toluca students to learn about the U.S. educational system and develop new friendships through a home hosted experience with Trinity Valley School families.
The Toluca students must complete an international exchange as part of their graduation credits, and these students chose to visit Fort Worth. Sister Cities will facilitate this exchange through the Ambassador School Program.
