Teen Refugees In Boise Try To Fit In

One third (1/3) of all refugees are in Boise high school!

5% of all students in Boise are refugees. 

In Boise, Idaho, about 1,300 of the city’s 26,000 students last year were refugees, roughly a third of them in high school. The United States expects to resettle 85,000 refugees in 190 cities and towns nationwide this year. Like their American counterparts, Boise’s student refugees long to fit in, but they face enormous challenges.
