Kudos to our Students & Staff
I just wanted to write to you to convey our deep appreciation of your teaching methods. I remember attending the the back to school night when you told us what you would be covering and why you would do so.
Sowing the seeds of enquiry and ability to conceptualize concepts is what is missed by many who merely strive for breath over depth of study.
I really love to see the change in (my child) as it happened.
Kudos to you."
