On Monday, December 4th, Franklin Central High School in Franklin Township Community Schools had the honor of hosting 24 educators from Hangzhou, China. Locally, the experience was organized by Mrs. Susan Tomlinson, Social Studies teacher at Franklin Central and the Chinese Education Connection.
The visitors formed groups and observed classes in the following areas: 3D Art, Fashion and Textiles, Sociology, US History, AP Environmental Science, Pre AP Chemistry, Advanced Choir and others. Our Chinese visitors learned a great deal about Franklin Central and education in the United States. As reported by Dr. Sheila Sherman, Assistant Superintendent, “They were very impressed with Franklin Central, the quality and variety of the educational opportunities our students receive and the politeness of all of our Flashes! It was a valuable experience for all involved.”
Franklin Central High School is home to more than 2,600 students and it’s mission is to instill in all students a passion for lifelong learning and to inspire each one to contribute as a responsible citizen to the future of our interconnected world. It was a pleasure for the school to showcase what it has to offer for this team of educators from Hangzhou, China.
