    Each June, our International Colonials program brings 11 high school basketball players from 11 countries to Boston for a three-week New England tour. Walpole is our first stop on the tour and our young guests have received outstanding hospitality from their Walpole hosts over the past seven years.

    In addition to their native language, all of these players speak English and at least one other language. Many speak four or five languages. It’s pretty impressive.

    We hear so much about the global economy. Now, it is likely that English will remain the preeminent language for business for the forseeable future but our students really need to master other languages in order for our country to remain truly competitive over the decades ahead. And initiating this process in middle school makes a great deal of sense.
