International Travel Provides Opportunities for Learning and Growth

by Jessica Meissner, Director of Curriculum and Curriculum

One goal that RSD has had for many years is to make sure that students have the opportunity to be able to learn and grow both inside and outside of the classroom. The Travel Abroad Program offers juniors and seniors the ability to gain skills over the course of two years, with the culmination being a trip abroad. In April, eight students, Teaching Assistant Jeff Pratt, and I spent 10 days between Paris, France and London, England. What the students gained during the two years of preparation and planning and then what they added to their skills and knowledge during our trip will serve them well in life, regardless of where their path takes them!
