The Barnesville Middle School participates in a student foreign exchange program with the Leonardo Da Vinci School located in Lima, Peru. Seventh or eighth grade students from LDVS visit Barnesville for three weeks in January and February. They live with a host student and family and participate in school classes and activities as well as attending planned field trips. In June and July we send three or four of our students to Peru to participate in classes and field trips and learn about the rich history of Peru. The trip includes a four day trip to Cuzco and Machu Picchu. This is a great enrichment program that touches all of the lives of our Middle School students and raises awareness of the global community. It is also a great way for both participating schools to have their students become more fluent in the English and Spanish language.
