Exchange Program Overview
Orinda/Tabor Sister City Foundation has sponsored a Czech visiting student at Miramonte High School each fall semester for the past 16 years. Participating students are chosen in partnership with Klub Orinda/Tabor which organizes essay competition and interviews for local high school students. You can read more about the competition and experiences of previous students at www.orindaklub.com.
OUR STUDENT - FALL 2017
After careful consideration of top-notch applicants, our Board and Klub Orinda/Tabor (in Tabor) has chosen Marek Vybiral as our visiting student for the fall 2017 semester at Miramonte High School.
Marek's favorite subjects in school are geography and history, and he is an avid athlete, who swims, skis, cycles and likes to hike! Marek is also fond of languages, and looks forward to learning about the way of life in Orinda and getting involved with our big Czech Festival in the fall.
We are currently looking for a host family for Marek for the fall, preferably one with an existing student at Miramonte. Contact us if you are interested in hosting!
