Hosting Educational Exchange

Bayport-Blue Point High School students had the chance to learn about France and the French culture when several students from the Lycée Carnot traveled from Cannes – in the south of France – to their school.

After a warm welcome from their host families, the visitors were quickly immersed in the life of a BBP student. The visitors attended classes alongside their peers, including school sporting events and an excursion to NYC. The two groups discussed the similarities and differences between high school in both countries – including the release time for students, spots options and how French students declare a “concentration” to study while still in high school.

In addition to attending an American high school, the French students visited Dowling College, toured the Bayport Fire Department and explored Bayport Flower Houses.
