Spanish is part of Community School’s curriculum for all our students. Since 1998, our Spanish teacher, Elena Isler, has led an exchange program to broaden students’ knowledge of Spanish and apply their learned skills in a real life setting.
The Bolivian Exchange Program is a six-week student exchange program offered between Community School’s older middle school students and students of Colegio Domingo Savio in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. It is an educational opportunity for students to immerse themselves in the culture and language of a foreign country.
While participating in the exchange program, students live with a host family and attend classes at the corresponding host school. There is also extensive travel in the exchange countries and many extracurricular activities.
