What Students and Teachers say about Us

"A week of learning gave the students the opportunity to explore deeper, to be active and engaged and to take more responsibility for their learning. The daily experts provided a wealth of knowledge that encouraged critical thought and making connections. The students were given more time to really dig into an area of their own choice and to write about issues and subjects that mattered to them. The rich learning experience will certainly go beyond the classroom, it will remain with them for life!"

S. Watt, Teacher
