Greetings! Portsmouth High School is the public high school for Portsmouth, NH, USA. Portsmouth is a charming small city on the seacoast equidistant from the White Mountains and Boston. Our primary taught languages are French, Latin, and Spanish, but we have also begun offering Italian and German in an immersion format aimed at upperclassmen primarily (juniors and seniors 16-18 years old). We offer German every other year. We are looking for a school interested in establishing an exchange, probably every two years, where our students come for Aprils vacation (10 days at the end of April) and our sister school, should they wish can come either before or afterwards. From the Germany point of view, visiting our community in October would be rather lovely. We have breath taking foliage and Halloween in a safe and lovely community.

Wünsche hinsichtlich Partnerschule: We are looking for an exchange partner school. Beginning next year, we will be teaching an intensive German immersion class. They will not be fluent, but will have some basic language abilities. We would hope to travel for 10 days at the end of April, and we would hope to host in the USA as well, if out partner school is able. Although many times would be available, it is particularly nice to travel our way towards the end of October for foliage and Halloween.We already have exchanges in Puerto Rico, France, and Italy. In our exchanges the home stay is key. Students stay with their families for the entire excursion with the possible exception of an overnight if a destination is just too far for a return trip the same day. They usually attend school for about two days with their host siblings, and then for the remainder of the trip they go on exchanges during the day and return home in the evening for dinner time.Schools who come to us tend to follow the same schedule more or less. We are highly accessible from Logan Airport (Boston) with a bus that goes directly from the airport to Portsmouth.
