Why Read About Greece When You Can See It Yourself?
Once upon a time students had “pen pals” in other countries. Today it’s a whole different experience. The eighth grade students at Fantis visit Greece each year as part of a cultural exchange program. The week-long trip culminates years of studying Hellenic culture and the Greek language, while also allowing visits to their virtual pen pals. Part of a school-wide initiative called “Classroom NYC & Beyond,” Fantis students explore the vast world in order to make learning more active and effective—from Pre-K trips to the Transit Museum to a Middle School overnight camping trip in Upstate New York.
