Superintendent's Notes

Seeking interest in the first MHS international exchange program to India 

Mark Twain once stated: "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream, Discover.” As you know, travelling allows one to open their perspectives, build tolerance for diversity, as well as learn first-hand about the history and culture of the world.  These are experiences that one learns from and remembers their entire life.  I am very excited to let you know that we are seeking student interest in an opportunity to participate in Maynard High School's 1st ever International Exchange Program with a school in New Delhi, IndiaThere will be more information presented at the June 6, 2013 school committee meeting.  If approved, student's will visit and explore several major historic cities visiting exciting places like the Taj Mahal, Delhi Hut, and Akshardham, as well as participate in schooling, and rich community service.  The program will run for three weeks from December 13th through January 4th (tentatively) with students from India joining Maynard High School in the spring of 2014.  Please see Assistant Principal, Ms. Vadhera for an application and additional information. This is an opportunity you will not want to miss!
