Summer in Shanghai

This summer, MICDS students and faculty traveled to China for their annual exchange with MICDS’ sister school, the Shanghai Foreign Language School. While there, students took courses at the school, stayed with host families, visited historic tourist sites and tried authentic Chinese food. World Languages Teacher Lily Childs and English Teacher Dan Sadicario accompanied the students on the trip.

“The Chinese exchange trip provides students opportunities to step out of the classroom and go beyond their comfort zone to engage and explore Chinese culture and lifestyle. Additionally, students learn daily life first-hand by staying with their host family and building lifelong friendships.” — Lily Childs
