NRHS Students Visit Capitol, Museums, More On D.C. Trip
Fifty-six New Rochelle High School students explored Washington DC this week, visiting the Capitol, the Supreme Court and other landmarks, and placing a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

It was the tenth annual trip taken by the AP Government and Politics class to learn more about the nation’s capital and civic action.

“It was really cool to see the documents we learned about in class,” said senior Victoria Skolnick.

Among the sites they toured, the students visited the Library of Congress, the National Archives and several of the Smithsonian museums, including The African American Museum of History and Culture and The American History Museum.

“I knew most of the information at the African American museum from school, but seeing it and getting a visual made me feel heartbroken,” said senior Kayla Stewart. “Seeing the Emmett Till exhibit was very emotional.”

On Friday, they took a trip across the Potomac River to Arlington National Cemetery to offer the wreath. Other stops included the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site and the National Postal Museum.

“The great thing about this trip is that everything that I’ve seen connects to something I have learned in many different classes,” said senior Maddie Bamberger.
