"You can climb this one in a private [place], but not in school so it's pretty cool that the school offers something like this," said Louisa Winkler, an exchange student, as she pointed to the rock wall.
"I was really excited to see them all climb it because, I mean, some of them have climbed rock walls before, but she never has," said Kiana Callahan, a student mentor from Tomahawk High School.
Tomahawk German Teacher Allison Shantz says this program helps build bonds between students. It's something she says benefits both the exchange students and the Tomahawk High School students.
"Especially for such a small town [in] Wisconsin, having this exchange is a huge opportunity for students to really broaden their world view," said Shantz.
Program organizers say many of the students who have participated in the program before have stayed in touch.
In July, Tomahawk High School students will also have the chance to travel to Germany and stay with their same partners.
