This was great advice for me too! My 13yo 8th grader (coming to HKIS High) is a wreck about moving. Hearing that the relations made here are more impactful than relations back in US is really good news. She has been SO worried that everyone will have international experience and she won't. We are visiting the school and the area apts in March. Any additional advice or suggestions of places to take her to ease her mind?
