Chinese Cultural Exchange

I-SS signs Cultural Exchange Contract with Tower Bridge International.

In February 2016, Iredell-Statesville Schools began a partnership with the public schools of Beijing, China for a cultural exchange program.  In late summer, we will be welcoming back a group of high school students to attend school for the 2016-2017 school year.
