The Scottish Exchange is our second oldest consecutively running exchange, with the first student exchange taking place in 1972.
All eighth grade girls are invited to apply. Four girls are selected.
While in Scotland, our girls live with a host family and attend St. George’s School for Girls in Edinburgh. Each host family has a girl who is the same age and in the same grade as their GFS counterpart. This is a one month exchange.
Our students travel to Scotland in mid-January and the Scottish girls come to GFS from late April into early May. This exchange has a summer faculty component as well.
The coordinator for this program is Robert Reinhardt, one of our Middle School Art teachers.
