Ms. Martinez and Mr. Forfar were chosen by the The National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA) to study in Japan this past summer. The program included visits to Tokyo, Kyoto, Fukuoka, Nagasaki, Hiroshima, Takayama, and Koyasan. This is an exciting precedent that will help pave the way for ISLC high school student trips to other countries! Map of Japan
