Currently, April 10th through May 2nd, 18 JFKS sophomores attend our partner school, Trinity HS, in the Fort Worth/Dallas metroplex within the framework of the German American Partnership Program. Besides attending school, the students go on excursions, for example to the Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas to inform themselves about the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Also, they visit the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth to study Western art from Cole and Bierstadt to Russell and Remington. A day at the University of Texas in Arlington familiarized them with original documents about German Immigration to Texas as on display there in the Library, Special Collections. A day in Austin at the State Capitol and the UT were the highlite of the stay.
