Cherry Hill High School East is hosting 18 students, pictured with their student hosts, and two teachers from the German High School, Gymnasium Puchheim, located outside of Munich in the southern German state of Bavaria, as part of the German-American Partnership Program (GAPP). This is the second time Cherry Hill East has participated in the exchange, which takes place from September 9-19. The German visitors stay with Cherry Hill families to experience the American way of life first hand. In addition to attending classes, the students will have the opportunity to see the sights of South Jersey, Philadelphia and New York. Many Cherry Hill host students will accompany them to Philadelphia as they visit the Barnes Foundation and Reading Terminal Market, and benefit from an expert guided tour by Free Tours By Foot.
In June, 2018, Cherry Hill High School East students and two teachers will travel to Germany and complete the exchange stay with the same families who stayed with them.The current itinerary includes a two-day stay in Iceland, several days in Berlin, and a number of day excursions.
