"My son's confidence, especially in writing and math has soared, as has his curiosity and desire to delve into what appears on the surface to be insoluble.
He has gained confidence in expressing what resides within all of us, but which often goes unspoken.
You allowed free expression, encouraging his compassion to blossom, his desire to be a peacemaker to be expressed, his gentleness to be respected, his competitive spirit to emerge -- and not restricted to "winning." What greater gift could you have possibly given me?" Parent of 8th grade student.
