international life on the hilltop
The world comes to us, here on the Hilltop! With students and faculty from all over the country - and the world, the Hilltop is an incredible place to grow as a member of our global community.
Salisbury is fortunate to have students from around the world attend our school and is proud to have students representing numerous countries choose to pursue their secondary school education on the Hilltop, including the Bahamas, Bermuda, Cameroon, Canada, China, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Namibia,Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
Salisbury offers numerous chances for students to improve their English expression, become familiar with American styles of thought and make cross-cultural friends. We also endeavor to be proactive in offering programming aimed at enabling international students to adjust to American teaching methods.
In turn, our international students provide the entire community with a better understanding about a variety of national histories and cultures--an important tool for all Salisbury boys to develop in today's global society. Throughout the year, events are hosted where boys share customs with fellow students and faculty members. For instance, Salisbury annually celebrates the Asian New Year with a big festival in the Dining Room.
Of special note, an international student orientation is held at the beginning of each school year for new students. And, International students meet regularly with the two international student advisors, Dean of Faculty and Chair of the History Department Rhonan Mokriski '90 and Instructor in Mandarin Chinese Yukun Luo.
