Contact R. Detwiler-  215-272-0195  for information.       Jenkintown students recently returned from a great 2-week experience in Spain.
Jenkintown High School has had an exchange relationship with Colegio Divina Pastora of León, Spain, since 2009.  We conduct our exchange every two years.  The group from Spain comes for 2 1/2 weeks mid-September/early October.  The Jenkintown group travels to Spain for two weeks in the spring (Semana Santa plus the week before.)  25 - 30 students participate from each school.

The school in Spain has reached a level of interest in participation that they wish to conduct an exchange every year, rather than every other.  Jenkintown cannot at this time.  We would like to find another school in our region that would like to host the exchange in alternate years beginning next school year, 2017-2018.  If you would like to take on this fantastic and rewarding project even just once as a trial experience, Jenkintown will share with you details of their whole program and help you, so that you'll have to invent almost nothing, or only as much as you wish.  There is no more affordable way to take a group of students to Spain.  The cost to Jenkintown students has been between $1600 and $1900.  If you are interested or simply have questions or would like a presentation, please respond to this e-mail, or contact Richard Detwiler directly: ,  215-272-0195 (cell).
