Any 8th graders that went this year on the trip to Washington in Park Ridge? My son came home w / a information meeting in a few weeks just trying to prepare myself for how much this trip is ? Looking for the pro/ cons if your child went ? Thank you

It is about $1300. It is a fabulous trip. They see a ton of stuff and it is very well run. All three of my kids went and they all loved it.

Yep props to your son! This is the first I’m hearing about it and I just asked my son and got a “oh shoot, I forgot to bring it home! ” 🙄

Research the company . the one our school was going to use had horrible reviews and the kids the year prior said they were so rushed to see everything that they literally walked past most monuments.

My son was in CPS and went to DC for their 8th grade trip. He LOVED IT and still talks about it. They flew out of Midway.

My daughter went (she's a sophomore now). It was about 1200-1300. there is a payment plan. The kids absolutely loved the trip. They see a lot in the short time they are there. My opinion is - it's a great experience.

Yes. Meals are included. We sent the kids with snacks in their suitcase to have on hand and gave them extra spending money for snacks and souvenirs

Highly recommend it. I went with both my daughters school trip and made my husband tag along with second daughter. That was 7 years ago. my husband is still talking about it.

My kids went along time ago. Loved it but definitely get insurance if offered. The school canceled the trip because of 9/11 and I was the only one you didnt lose the payments I made.
