HudsonWay Immersion School (HWIS) graduates often come back and share their stories about what they did after HWIS. It's always interesting to hear how HWIS prepared them for middle and high school as well as how they are maintaining their language skills.

Matt Fallon graduated from HWIS Mandarin track in 2014. He was accepted at The Pingry School for high school. After leaving HWIS, Matt continued his Mandarin studies through weekly Skype sessions with a tutor in China, joined on a two-week-long trip to China during spring break which included living with a Chinese family in a homestay, and worked towards achieving a 5 on the Advanced Placement test in grade 8. He recently graduated from The Pingry School and is a participant in the US Olympics swimming trials.
