From biking the famous Appian Way to exploring the ancient towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum, and tracing the contours of the Amalfi coast on the “Path of the Gods” – Indian Hill High School Latin scholars spent spring break embracing an unparalleled global learning opportunity. The last week of March, 23 Braves enjoyed a week-long study trip to Rome and the Bay of Naples.
“Students put their study of the language and the ancient world in context as they examined Rome’s most iconic landmarks,” said Indian Hill High School Latin teacher Mark Atwood. “They gained firsthand experience of Rome’s transportation system, both ancient and modern, negotiating the city’s metro on foot, and traversing the famous Appian Way on bicycles. It was an experience of a lifetime.”
“We really want to thank our parents and the District for allowing us to share with our students the world that long ignited in us a lifelong passion for learning and discovery,” said Indian Hill High School Latin teacher Melissa Burgess. “This trip was beyond anything we could teach within the confines of a classroom; our students lived their studies – and that is priceless.”
