DCPS Goes Global

This summer, through the District of Columbia Public Schools’ Study Abroad program, more than 400 students are participating in fully-funded trips to more than a dozen countries.

It was a very intense and emotional experience for me, but I have never felt closer to my ancestors; I have never felt closer to myself.”
