China Trip

PHM students on Spring 2017 trip to China


March 27 – April 4, 2019


One of the many educational value adds that Penn-Harris-Madison students have a chance to encounter are travel abroad experiential learning opportunities. Every other spring break, students from all three middle schools (Discovery, Grissom and Schmucker) are given the amazing chance to travel to China. P-H-M Discovery Middle School Principal Sheryll Harper established the exchange program with Lishan school district in Anshan, China in 2008, trips began in 2009.  The next trip is planned for March 27 – April 4, 2019.


The curriculum based immersion trip engrosses the students in Chinese culture during the one week plus trip. The curriculum was developed by P-H-M educators and meets Indiana state Social Studies educational standards. It is well timed and coordinates to when the middle school students are studying ancient and modern day China in their Social Studies classes. 


If you are interested in having your child participate, please email Mr. James Howard or Mrs. Sheryl Harper for details. Students must be in good discipline standing.
