Dr. Engel from my host district had sent me a message with the name of my first host family and the school I will be attending. I promptly got very, very excited, looked up the school online, and emailed my family in German to thank them and express my utter EXCITEMENT!!!!!!!!
The school I will be attending is the Schiller-Gymnasium (click here for school website), which is about 4 kilometers from my home in Heidenheim an der Brenz. This is a short post that does not do my happiness justice; hopefully I will hear a reply from my host family soon and have more information.
In the meantime, here are some more photos of my soon-to-be school and hometown.
Words fail me.
I have never been this happy to see a school.
The school has a Kammerchor; I guess they sing here.
Yes, there is a music and theatre program!
