In finding the correct school options, the company you keep is most important, and so many great partnerships are created here in Berlin with international as well as domestic schools and programs. Steve Blanchard of Wasatch Academy and Tom Sheppard of Robert Lewis Stevenson and myself had time to spend during this conference to fill me in on the new construction at both of their schools. As a TASIS alumnus, it was great to connect with admissions, Helen Roowalla and learn she is a Banana Slug!
