EF Global Education Excellence Award 

"Spencer School has shown an outstanding commitment to offering a global education,” said Bob Fredette, President of EF High School Exchange Year. “By welcoming exchange students into the classrooms, the school has created new and unique learning opportunities for not just the exchange students, but for the American students and faculty as well."

This year, Spencer welcomed 3 EF High School Exchange Year exchange students. Not only were the students accepted into the school, but they became an integral part of the school's academic and extracurricular life and involved the greater community in the exchange experience. 

“My experience at Spencer has been amazing,” said EF student Ida Nielsen from Denmark. “I was able to participate in school sports and choir, which is something I would not have had the experience of trying back home. One of the things I appreciate most about my experience at Spencer is the bond I have made with my team mates. I will never forget my time in Spencer, WI and I know I will always be welcome here.”

Local exchange coordinator Jo Schultz added, "We thank Spencer School District for welcoming this year's students from around the globe. The community and visiting students shared an unforgettable experience thanks to the generosity of Spencer’s administration, teachers, students and families." 

Headquartered in Cambridge, Mass., EF High School Exchange Year has been committed to promoting international understanding and global awareness for over 30 years. The organization brings more students to the United States each year than any other high school exchange program. Since 1979, EF High School Exchange Year has matched more than 100,000 enthusiastic students from around the world with caring host families across the United States.
