Randolph - to be more precisely, Braintree, Vermont:
Not only our long driveway, the house surrounded by woods and cows, five feet snow in the winter and a yellow school bus on unpaved roads stuck to my memory, but a wonderful extended family I never had, big trucks and large malls, a school system based on electives and multiple-choice and a vast, scarcely populated landscape were among the things that challenged my otherwise exclusively German world-view.
Braintree, Vermont and my school year at RUHS had a lasting impact on my life.
Randolph Union High School did not only do an excellent job at including their exchange students into school life, but moreover offered valuable classes in American History, British Literature, AP Calculus and especially Ecology. The Exchange Club at RUHS provided us with guidance on basic questions around school life. Based on this model I founded the Exchange Club at Gymnasium Rutesheim.
