The Russian Immersion program (Romig Middle and West High schools) has established academic and cultural ties with their sister school # 534 in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. The exchange program started in May of 2012.
     In March 2018 the Russian Immersion programs at West and Romig visited the sister exchange school for two weeks . The large group of the Russian students (7-11 grades), the Russian teachers, and parents traveled to Moscow.  They visited Tula and Leo Tolstoy's Estate (Yasnaya Polyana), took a train to Saint-Petersburg, and spent a week with host families and the sister school. Next year (March 2019) the Russian Immersion program will be hosting the Russian exchange students.
