School Applications have been sent

We are hoping the girls will attend "The Franconian Internation School" located in Erlangen. It seems as though they have just built a new school building that opened this year. There was only one spot left in 10th grade, but I think since we have all our information sent in that it will be no problem for the girls to attend.
The school is an "IB" (International Baccalaureate) school. Here is a link to more information about the IB program in general.

The field trips look like fun:

"The Grade Six class travelled to Belgium’s Euro Space Camp in order to learn more about their Science curriculum while being introduced to the space shuttle and experiencing how astronauts live."

Our Middle School Principal won't even let the students leave the state, much less the country!
