For the fourth year in a row, students from Science and Technology Magnet High School (STMHS) hosted members from their sister school located in Montecatini, Italy for a successful foreign exchange experience!  

Twenty students and their English teachers from Montecatini arrived at STMHS on September 17, for a 10-day dynamic learning experience. Upon their arrival, the Italian guests were greeted with a warm welcome and open arms by their STMHS and New London High School host families. 

Throughout the duration of their stay, the Italian students were immersed in the life of an American high school student and had opportunities to shadow their host student(s) while at school. In addition to attending classes, the Italian students completed a comprehensive English class offered by New London High School. The Italian guests also had an opportunity to visit a variety of New England attractions including a day trip to Plymouth, Massachusetts. While in Plymouth, the guests and host students visited Plymouth Plantation and had the opportunity to go on an exciting whale watching tour. Their visit was concluded on Saturday, September 26, with a farewell traditional Thanksgiving dinner hosted at STMHS.

Next Spring, New London’s host students will have the opportunity to go on a similar trip to Italy, and experience life as an Italian student and resident in Montecatini.

Students at STMHS receive an education far beyond the classroom, school building and campus. Our scholars explore different frontiers and are offered opportunities to see the world from a new perspective and the successful exchange program is one example of the exceptional opportunities offered at STMHS.
