French Connection seeks to build a global literacy at North High School by engaging in rigorous academic work and relationship building with students from Lycée René Char in Avignon, France. It seeks to recognize, understand, and appreciate another culture while furthering students' understanding of their own culture. Throughout the year, students and teachers from both schools work together on a variety of academic projects. In October, seniors from René Char visit North and have opportunities to experience American culture with their host families. During Spring Break, students from North are welcomed to René Char for a week of school and sightseeing.
