This March, IST students and their families visited China for an international cultural immersion and service trip. Our student travelers took part in many exciting activities which included a service project at the Woolong Giant Panda Center, a student exchange at Shanghai American School , Calligraphy & Kungfu class at East China Normal University, along with many other exciting activities.

The trip was a stunning success and helped the students to further their language acquisition in Mandarin, as well as broaden their global awareness and cultural appreciation.
