After the trip to Spain, our ninth graders took some time to reflect on their experiences.
The 9th Grade Program
We have thoroughly enjoyed our time here and while we are sad to leave everyone is excited to return back home!
We got on the bus and headed to Montserrat where unfortunately the funicular was not open for the season yet so instead our able bodied guide Raquel took us on a hike through the mountains to see the amazing views!
We started our day with a bus tour through Barcelona as we made our way to Parc Güell. During the bus tour we were able to see how the city is uniquely situated between mountains to its west and the Mediterranean Sea to its east.
For more than 25 years, Foote ninth graders have studied the health of New Haven’s West River, analyzing water samples and aquatic life and reporting findings to officials at the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.
