On Friday, January 19, P-H-M hosted  21 students and seven teachers from P-H-M’s partner school in Anshan, China.


The visit started at Discovery where students, staff and P-H-M administrators attended a kick-off breakfast. The student visitors spent the morning at Discovery sitting in on various classes with their P-H-M host student learning from DMS teachers. The students and teachers also got to ride P-H-M school buses to visit classrooms at Grissom and Schmucker Middle schools—giving them a complete flavor of academic life in Penn-Harris-Madison.
