Thomas joined H.I.S. in fourth Grade. Last January he moved to the US and started school in Washington DC. Starting halfway through a year in a new school is never easy but staying in an international environment helps a lot. Thomas was accepted really fast in his new environment and adapted well since then. Just this week he finished his middle school with an “8th Grade Moving Up Ceremony”. He is off to Upper School in September.
Of course leaving his friends behind was not easy for Thomas but one of the fun things of moving is that you get to see friends again that have moved before you and happen to live in your ‘area’.
