So far the U.S. reminds Josephin Hirsch of Sweden. The German foreign exchange student attending Frazee High School said the heavily wooded areas and ample lakes in both countries made her draw the comparison.
Faculty members for Frazee students in grades 7-12 are formulating a plan to give their students two days of mentor/study time a week. This new plan may start after the students come back from Christmas break.
Every Minnesota student in grade 9-12 will leave high school with a portfolio, highlighting their achievements as well as their grades and even assessment tests to show what jobs their interests and skills match up with.
