MIHS student needs host family

A host family is needed for a foreign exchange student who is attending Mercer Island High School for the remainder of the school year.

A host family is needed for a boy from China who is an active and sporty student. He enjoys basketball, bike riding and table tennis. He has been cooking since he was 7 and loves to cook for his family; he also loves music and enjoys operas and musicals. He can’t wait to meet his new American family.

Students come with good English skills, their own insurance and spending money, and mainly the desire to be a member of an American family. Host families do not need to have teenagers of their own; young families as well as empty-nesters are excellent high school student hosts this year.
