Leland and Gray has expanded its Chinese-American education programs by establishing three sister-schools in Zhejiang Province. This development greatly enhances the commitment of Leland and Gray’s School Board, faculty, and administration to Chinese studies. Begun in 1999 with Journey East, a semester-long intensive Asian studies seminar open to all secondary students in the region, Chinese-American school partnerships have played a prominent role. On March 27th, the 6th Journey East delegation of students and teachers departed for a month of touring their theatrical production throughout China.
Sister-school partnerships between public and private American and Chinese schools have expanded in recent years as more Chinese students aspire to perfect their English and study in renowned American universities. Leland and Gray’s sister-schools, all of which are highly competitive public boarding schools, include Jinhua Art School, Yuhang High School, and Yunhe High School. The sister-school agreement commits to: collaboration and exchange of curriculum, instructional methods, and educational leadership; development of relationships between teachers and students through collaborative projects; arrangement of short- and long-term visits; and sharing programs and hosting exchanges.

Ludlow, VT On this past March 8th and 9th, The Leland and Gray Snowboard Team rounded out the season competing at the Vermont State Snowboarding Championships, held at Okemo Mountain in Ludlow, VT. They were both incredible spring days with temp’s in the 60s and sunny. The snow was soft and the riding was a lot easier than the usual ice we ride on during the regular season.
On Thursday we attended the Halfpipe contest. The team has been training in a 20 foot pipe all year at Mount Snow and the one at Okemo was only 14 feet so it was a bit of a challenge to get used to, in the hour or so they had to practice.
Townshend, VT In Mr. Sperling’s eighth grade history class, students were given the task of creating a scale model of a French and Indian War era fort. First, students were asked to imagine they were part of an English frontier settlement in Massachusetts that suffered an attack similar to the one that occurred in Deerfield in 1704. Imagining themselves as refugees, students were to select a site in the West River Valley that was defensible while containing the necessary resources. Next, they were asked to draw plans for a fort appropriate in size for about 60 settlers. Two of the plans were chosen and each student was assigned a piece of the fort to construct. The students were required to build their assigned structure to scale while using building techniques such as box joints, mortise and tenon joinery and bird’s mouth cutouts for the rafters.

In Florence, history and culture are one and the same -the Renaissance Duomo symbolizes a major turning point in Western civilization. And the Roman Colosseum reminds us of the ancient empire's crucial role in shaping our world." -EF Tours
