Where in the world…

whereworld1Students at LIS are from the far reaching corners of the earth. Each student has their own unique immigration story. The dots on the map above indicate the students’ country of origin.

This year, the 215 students at LIS come from 20 different countries: Benin, Brazil, China, Djibouti, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Gambia, Guatemala, Honduras, Ivory Coast, Mali, Mexico, Nigeria, Somalia, Sudan, Tibet, Togo, and Vietnam.

whereworld2Students in Esther Wagner’s English classes are writing a story entitled, “My Life.” This exercise is giving students practice in  sentence structure and proper grammar. When the stories are finished each student will share their story with the class. In addition to developing writing and grammar skills this exercise will help students get to know each other a little better.

All with the desire to learn are welcome!
