Lasting memories and treasured friendships were formed on a Spanish Exchange trip between twenty BSHS students and Padre Isla students from León, Spain. BSHS students arrived on March 21st to spend their days attending school and experiencing Spanish life while staying with their host family. Spanish & American students and families were further enriched by the cultural and linguistic connections shared when Padre Isla recently visited Ballston Spa. This experience has touched the hearts and minds of our school community.
