West Prep has had two trips abroad with our students in the past two years. In 2013 scholars traveled to the Dominican Republic to learn first hand the influence that baseball has in the Carribean and on the youth as part of their culture. Students created a documentary called “From Island to Innings” and screened it at our West Prep film festival.
In 2014 11 students were selected to attend a 10 day Grand Tour of Italy. Students visited over ten sites and five different cities throughout the country.
Our West Prep Service Learning documentary is called "From Islands to Innings: Dominican Baseball Dreams". West Prep students traveled to the Dominican Republic to research and create this film about the influence of baseball on the culture and lives of young people.
