Student Testimonials

"I felt so nervous the first week of school because I was new.  But then, I started making friends, and my teachers helped me a lot.  When they moved me to English general classes, I felt so proud.  My mom was especially proud of me.  If an English-learner is feeling nervous to go to a new school, this is a good place to go, because you get a lot of help."  - Ana

"My mom chose this school for me.  My brothers and sisters went here.  The first day I didn't know anybody.  But then, my friends invited me to be their friend.  Now I know half of the students here.  It's a fun, caring school.  Students shouldn't worry and be nervous about coming here because it will turn out good in the end." - Rico
