"I was most impressed with the passion of the teachers and the diversity of the students. I enjoyed it very much."

"I am impressed with the school district and hope we can get better publicity to spread the word of all the things our school district provides. I was welcomed and treated with much kindness and respect by everyone that I spoke to. It was a wonderful experience and I appreciated the opportunity."
