Here’s what Donna, a parent, had to say about the program:

The past three weeks flew by so quickly and my daughter had a fabulous time in all three of her weeks.  What a great introduction to a brand new school for her! She was actually able to meet four teachers and all of them were fantastic and took her out of her comfort zone to gain a better appreciation for the other arts disciplines. Thank you to you and your team for providing such an inspiring three weeks for the students.
