For the past two weeks, a group of German students has been visiting McNary High School, but the students’ preparation for the trip actually began long before they arrived in the U.S.
“We got to choose classes we wanted to sit in on from a huge master schedule before we came to visit,” said Katrin Hain.
The trip is an annual program coordinated by the German-American Partnership Program. Each spring, students from Stuttgart, Germany, visit Keizer and each summer a contingent of McNary students visit Germany. McNary instructor John Mangan and his German counterpart Manfred Pfeiffer collaborate to make the trips happen. Twenty-one students are visiting McNary while another 19 are visiting West Salem High School.
