Branson students attend American History trip

Forty Branson Junior High and High School students recently returned from an educational tour of Washington D.C.; New York City; Boston, MA; and Philadelphia, PA. Students were able to visit national landmarks and memorials while learning more about how these influential cities have helped shape our nation's past, present and future. This American History trip is taken every two years to give every Branson Junior High student a chance to participate.

Landmarks included the White House, Statue of Liberty, 9/11 Memorial, Arlington Cemetery, Liberty Bell, New York Stock Exchange, and many other museums and memorials.


Students studied the architecture and purpose of each room as they toured the U.S. Capitol Building.


Incoming eighth graders Madison De La Rosa and Samuel Walworth participated in the wreath laying ceremony at the tomb of George Washington.


Students heard from Holocaust survivor Alfred Munzer at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.


Students visited Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House where the noted author wrote and set “Little Women” in 1868.


"This trip was an amazing opportunity for our students to come face to face with history," said chaperone and BHS Assistant Principal Dr. Nathan Carter. "Our students wanted to understand the significance of each place we visited, and did an excellent job representing Branson Schools."
