We are a small public school near Denver Colorado. Our school has a focus on international studies. The entire staff has a passion for travel and exploring the world around them. They bring this excitement with them to all subjects and strive to include a world view in their classrooms. Students also have language classes (Spanish or Mandarin) every day to enhance their knowledge of other parts of the world. The capstone class of our school is an international trip for our level 8 students (13-14 years old). We would like to find a partner school to provide our students with the opportunity to immerse themselves in another culture. Our families are very supportive of the trip and look forward to giving their children that chance. Correspondence for a long period before the trip is ideal so that we can enhance our student's international education. As we are a small school (Pk-8 300 students, 80 students in levels 6-8), our middle school team works closely together each year to plan these capstone trips. We have a strong team to support one another as well as other teachers in the school.
