Calling it “an excellent opportunity for both the school and international visitors to share information and experiences in an effort to develop relationships that will strengthen global understanding and respect,” the U.S. Department of State’s International Visitors Leadership Program arranged a visit to the El Monte-Rosemead Adult School by a Brazilian education leadership delegation.
According to principal Keith Wheeler, the visitors were extremely impressed with the school’s programs, personnel and students.
“We certainly enjoyed their visit and learning about the Brazilian education system,” he added.
While in the United States, the visitors explored the innovative approaches to English language instruction and integration.
“They had high praises for our teachers, programs and most importantly the care that every member of the staff demonstrates toward our students,” said Wheeler. “We were very proud to be given the opportunity to host them at our school.”
