Over the years the wonderful international network generated by the Penobscot School has totally captured me. My classmates and I go to class together, have lunch together once a week, and have a delicious potluck dinner once a month in the kitchen at the school. I now have had about 12 teachers from Italy. Many are good friends whom I visit and with whom I correspond. I would never have these beautiful friends and the ability to enjoy the wonderfully written Italian novels and short stories if it weren’t for Penobscot School.
