Student Stories

"I won the Super student award and it was such a surprise because I never thought that would happen for me. I liked that at every end of the session you do something special in class. Either eat together in the morning, or go to a museum. This is really cool. It’s a good way to say goodbye to the students that are going home. With experiences like this you go to class and feel a stronger connection."
