On April 1, 2016, students from Maryland International Day School  traveled to Cuba on the heels of President Obama’s historic visit to the island nation.  The students ages 5 through 13  became the first Americans permitted to attend Cuban schools.  Their week-long trip was chronicled by a local TV station and reported in the Washington Post.  View the videos and read the articles by clicking on the following links:
