Harpool Middle School
Beginning in 2013, several teachers here at Harpool began actively working to recruit students (and parents) for our Educational Tour programs! Our first tour was in the summer of 2014 with a group of 14 students, parents, and teachers, visiting Washington, D.C. and New York City on a 5 day tour.
For 2015, we began to consider ways to make the tour even more appealing, and so added three days and two cities for what's known as the Eastern Seaboard tour- including Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, New York City, and Boston! While these additional days and cities added to the overall cost of the trip, we felt that traveling that far and missing out on the great history and culture in these additional locations that are so close by was just a shame! While our initial focus was the historical and political significance of these areas, rest assured that we will also have a blast!!!

While any Harpool student is welcome to come on any year's tour while they're here, our target is to take students during the summer during their 7th or 8th grade years, so that the experiences can be shared and related during their 8th grade classes.
