Since 2006, Burlington High School has participated in a Student Exchange Program with Istituto Tecnico Pilati of Cles, a city located in Northern Italy. In September, a group of about 20 BHS Italian students travel to Cles to live with a host family. During their stay in Italy, BHS students attend classes with their host student, participate in cultural activities and field trips. Typically, BHS students visit local tourist attractions, such as the cities of Verona, Trento, Venice, and Sirmione on Lake Garda. Please visit our blog site here.
Spanish Exchange Program
Since 2013, Burlington High School has participated in a Student Exchange Program with Collado Villalba High School in the province of Madrid, Spain. Every other year, about 20 students, accompanied by BHS Spanish teachers Profesora De Sousa and Profesora DiCroce, travel to Spain for two weeks in February to live with a host family and attend classes at a local high school. Aside from attending classes daily, students partake in cultural activities and excursions to nearby cities, including Madrid, Toledo, El Escorial, and Granada all the while enhancing their Spanish language skills and cultural knowledge. During that same academic year, high school students from Collado Villalba visit BHS for two weeks and stay with a BHS host student in their home.
