AFS (American Field Service) YES program

YES (Youth Exchange and study) is an innovative, high-school exchange programme funded by the US Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.  This public diplomacy initiative builds bridges of international understanding, especially between the Americans and people in countries with significant Muslim population.

AFS is one of the world's largest "not for Profit" volunteer-based organisation.  If offers international  exchange programmes in more than 50 countries through local AFS organisations.  AFS provides world wide leadership, coordination, support, quality control, and development.

The YES programme is wholly funded by the State Department of the US Government.  Students from class X and XI are selected.  Students have to take up a series of interviews and tests and only those who prove to be all-rounders are selected.

The school has so far sent 7 students to USA and 2 students to Japan.  The school also had the privilege of hosting one foreign student and hopes to host more in future.
