High schools that enroll FLEX students are invited by the USDOS to become Medallion Member Schools, but the benefits go far beyond that. Every FLEX student makes at least one cultural presentation and many also organize virtual exchanges—interesting and inspiring ways of using technology to connect their U.S. classes with classes back home. The international teens also participate in team sports, star in school plays, attend homecoming, and serve as a continuous reminder that there is much to learn and explore!
