A delegation from Langfang, China recently returned to West High School to explore best practices in American high schools, including the school’s renowned career and technical programs. The visit was facilitated by West High leaders Corri Williams, Matt Hassig, and Industrial Tech teacher Greg Smith, and is a continuation of an ongoing relationship between the school and the Langfang community. Delegates interacted with students and learned about the INSPIRE Academy programs and their international projects, including the work designing a water filtration system for their partner villages in Kenya. The visit was hosted by the City of Davenport and Davenport Sister Cities who named Langfang, China as a Friendship City after their first visit to West High School in 2015.
