In late January, Keystone Montessori welcomed 33 students from a school in Matadepera, Spain, on a student exchange program. Each student from Matadepera was paired with a student from Keystone Montessori, and they lived with him or her for two weeks, as if they were brothers and/or sisters. The goal of this exchange was for the foreign students to learn about American culture, practice the English language, and immerse themselves in American society.

During their stay, they visited many different places with the class and with their host families; they went to the Musical Instrument Museum, the Heard Museum, Desert Botanical Gardens, Camelback Mountain, Old Town Scottsdale, Natural History Museum, and the Hall of Flame. The Spanish students experienced Arizona’s beauty when they traveled to the Grand Canyon and Tortilla Flats ghost town.

Both the local and foreign students enjoyed the exchange, and in late April, the students from Keystone Montessori will be traveling to Matadepera to stay with their Spanish brothers and sisters.
