"I was especially happy that we came up in the fall. It was a wonderful way to start off the year. The students are in a different mind-set about school, are able to focus on their work, and were able to get to know their classmates in a way that they couldn't before... I see them working well together in groups and showing good leadership and responsibility. We have become a team! I feel very strongly that this program is most beneficial in the fall as the team-building aspect of the program is most noticeable. We are anxious to come again next year!"
