International Exchange Programs
David Thompson Secondary School
Students can choose to join our international exchange program held each year, to visit Vancouver in Canada for 7 to 10 days. They enjoy homestays and classes at our sister school, where they give presentations in English on aspects of Japanese culture, enhancing a strong sense of internationalism as well as advanced communication skills in English.
Students from our sister schools are also accepted in March as part of the program, giving YSFH students a chance at international exchange while still being in Japan.
Participants in these programs report that the programs have opened their eyes to many new ideas, foremost of which is to realize that they are supported by many other people, and that communicating with others in a sincere manner is respected in every culture.
