The P.K. Yonge – Nanjing Experimental International School (NJEIS) exchange was established in  2013.  Students visit NJEIS live dorms, visit Chinese families, and tour many interesting cultural sites. P.K. Yonge also hosts students from NJEIS where P.K. Yonge students share Gainesville, surrounding areas, and our school with them. Both activities promote the development of broader perspectives, and a deeper understanding of the world  – students are forever changed!
