Glencliff High holds International Day celebration

"The list of countries represented and languages spoken at Glencliff is long and changes every week. The students come from Sudan, Mexico, France, El Salvador, Cuba, Vietnam, Kurdistan, Iran, Ethiopia, Eritrea and so on and so on."

"'We don't have much prejudice here,' said Janette Lanier, English as a Second Language teacher at Glencliff."

"'There's just no room for it. The international day is good for all the kids to share their cultures with each other so they can understand each other even better.'"

"'They can see they're more the same than different. They're all teenagers struggling to become adults.'"
