Frequently Asked Questions

BBHS has a diverse international program that hosts 10-15 students each year from around the world. Some students come for a semester or year-long experience, whereas others come for their entire high school career. Over the years, we've hosted students from Chile, China, Germany, Italy, Korea, Spain, Taiwan, Vietnam and more!

International students live with host families with hopes of experiencing American life and improving their English proficiency. These students become quite involved at BBHS - from football, to lacrosse, the spring musical, to the dance team, and so much more. Many of our international students go on to universities in the U.S., such as the University of Washington, Washington State University, Loyola Marymount University, University of California at Los Angeles, Northwestern University, Georgetown University and many other great higher education institutions!

If your family is interested in experiencing a significant cultural exchange in your home, please be in touch!
