More than 100 Central Bucks High School stu­dents and their chap­er­ones pose before a 2,000 year old Roman aque­duct as they tour Segovia, Spain!

As part of the “Study Abroad: Spain,” course, 117 CBSD stu­dents trav­eled to Spain. Each stu­dent attend­ed four manda­to­ry night ses­sions and con­duct­ed research on a top­ic of their choice relat­ing to any aspect of Spain.

The course is designed to sim­u­late a mini study abroad so that stu­dents can see what study abroad in col­lege will be like. Students spent four days in Salamanca, Spain attend­ing class­es taught by their chap­er­ones each morn­ing. In the after­noons, the group trav­eled to see first hand what they learned about that day.

As pic­tured here, stu­dents learned about the aque­ducts in Segovia in the morn­ing, and lat­er that day we went to see them in per­son! Students also learned about medieval walled cities and in the after­noon trav­eled to Ávila to see one first hand. Other lessons includ­ed sur­vival Spanish, Flamenco lessons (taught by a chap­er­one and then also a pro­fes­sion­al fla­men­co dancer in Madrid!), art and the Prado, sword mak­ing in Toledo and bull­fight­ing.
