This page is under constant revision.
Its goal: to provide an overview (with details!) of what makes Chief Sealth an International High School.

There are many opportunities for Chief Sealth International students to travel the world. Applications are already past due for Global Visionaries (Guatemala), One World Now!

These students are 15 to 18 years of age, and are coming to this area for the upcoming high school year or semester. The exchange students arrive from their home country shortly before school begins and return at the end of the school year or semester.
