From Classroom to World Stage: Student Travel Tales

The American School of Advanced Studies never ceases to amaze its students, offering a plethora of luxurious team-building events such as excursions both abroad and locally.

This month, the 12th graders embarked on a journey to Italy. From the awe-inspiring Colosseum to the ancient narratives echoing in the Roman Forum, their adventure unfolded across remarkable places like the Mouth of Truth, the Uffizi Gallery, the Boboli Gardens, the Pitti Palace, and the exquisite sculptures of the Dioscuri brothers. Each step seemed to contribute to a vivid canvas of experiences. The Uffizi Gallery unveiled its artistic treasures, the Boboli Gardens transported them into a timeless fairy tale, and the Pitti Palace exuded grandeur and regality. Amidst history, they encountered sculptures narrating tales of Bernini’s genius and explored masterpieces by Caravaggio, Raphael, Titian, and Rubens at the Borghese Gallery. Adding a touch of magic to their journey was the students’ ability to connect the dots between their “Classics” studies and the sights they encountered. Guiding this epic journey were the exceptional Academic Dean Natia Tevzadze and homeroom teacher  Mariam Umudumovi.

The 8th graders ventured to Kakheti, exploring the old city of Telavi with its outstanding architecture and peaceful city vibes. The students visited the castle of Erekle King and local wine factories.

As this extraordinary week concluded, the students didn’t just return with souvenirs; they carried back a more profound understanding of the world’s and local heritage, a heightened appreciation for the arts, and memories that would serve as a testament to the transformative power of learning beyond the confines of the classroom.
