The focus of the trip is immigration and is a natural extension of their study of United States history. Students look at immigration from a variety of viewpoints, informed by tours of the United Nations and Ellis Island. In addition, students will visit three museums (Natural History, Metropolitan Arts and 9/11 memorial). We will tour the financial hub of the world and experience many cultures.
