Spanish Exchange Students Visit Seven Hills
Seven Hills welcomed 30 students and two teachers from IES Carlos III from Sept. 13 to 27. Upper School students hosted the guests and showed them around Seven Hills and Cincinnati. During their time in Ohio, exchange students experienced life on campus and off. On campus, students enjoyed physical education and theater classes, the Upper School’s Big Readers program, and practice, pizza, and ice cream with the varsity girls soccer team. They also took field trips to places like the American Sign Museum and Smale Park.“The Spanish students had a fantastic time here at Seven Hills,” said Upper School Spanish teacher Teresa Bardon. “They were amazed by our culture.” Bardon said students noted the respect and trust between Upper Schoolers and teachers as well as the overall friendliness and respect around campus. In addition to experiencing campus life, exchange students and their host families visited several Cincinnati institutions, including the Cincinnati Zoo, a Reds game, and a Bengals game.
