Mr. Abraham and his counterpart Martin Nolte, the Principal at Gesamtschule Nippes, signed a letter of intent to begin a student exchange program in the fall of 2017. 15 Perry Meridian High School German students will travel to their sister-school in Cologne, Germany in the fall of next year for the 3 week exchange program which includes 2 weeks of school and 1 week visiting historical sites. 15 Students from Gesamtschule Nippes high school will travel to PMHS in the spring of 2018 for the 3 week program.
