Ten Students from China Visit Northland Pines Submitted: 01/28/2013
Story By Lex Gray


EAGLE RIVER - We work more closely with China every day, exchanging jobs, ideas, and products.

So it makes sense that we should also learn about China.

Northland Pines students will get an opportunity to do just that.

Ten students from China are spending a month at the high school and middle school.

Ninth grader Cloris Fu had her doubts after the long flight from China.

"But then I saw this awesome place and I started to think "Whoa, everything is worth it." It's great to be here," she said.

Principal Jim Brewer hopes the program leads to frienships, but it's also about economics.

"For us to learn from each other and grow and adapt with each other is vitally important not only for individual students, but America as well," Brewer said. "China is our largest trading partner and with the amount of people that they have, it's very important that we connect with them."

Two students from Northland Pines will visit Beijing in March.
