Our French sister school is Lycée Jeanne d’Arc in Mazamet, France. This reciprocal relationship allows us to share language and culture between our students, the two school communities, and the two communities at large. Our students have the opportunity to participate in a home stay with a Jeanne d’Arc student and host that same student when he or she comes to BHS. The time in France involves living with the host family, attending some classes, and going on cultural excursions as a group. This is a reoccurring program and takes place every other year with the Jeanne d’Arc students coming here in October and BHS students going in April.
