From the beginning, twinship contacts have taken place on several levels.
|Mörike Gymnasium||St. Charles High School|
|Friedrich-Schiller-Gymnasium||St. Charles West High School|
|Goethe-Gymnasium||Lutheran High School
Orchard Farm High School
So far, about 600 German students and about 400 American students
have taken part in the various exchange programs.
The uneven number is due to the fact that only about 300 students in St. Charles/Missouri take German as a subject,
and the programs are not organized on strictly reciprocal lines.
From the year 2000, the exchange programs have been open to students who do not take German.
So far, only High Schools have been involved in the exchange,
simply because we wanted to use our initial contacts immediately.
Of course, our aim is to expand the exchange to all kinds of schools, but that takes time.
Altogether, the school exchange programs and particularly the number of students taking part,
have developed and stabilized beyond our expectations.
