Here are a few quotes from some SEI students, proud parents, and teachers:

“This was hands down the best school experience my son has ever had, and he usually struggles with school. He’s still talking about it. He loved Mrs. Duncan’s curriculum and loved having her as a teacher! I can’t say enough positive things about the two weeks he spent in the course. I was worried he wouldn’t like the masks or be scared, but it went so, so much better than I could’ve imagined.”

Enrichment Camp Parent

“LAEF is wonderful. I love the diversity of classes. My kids have taken Spanish, ASL, breakdancing, skateboarding, theatre, and science. It is so nice to be able to give them such a big array of activities without a huge commitment. They figure out what they like through exposure and good teachers, and then we can dig into the activities they want to keep doing. Can’t wait to go back to the in-school model when COVID is over so we can pick back up where we left off. Keep up the good work.”

Enrichment Camp Parent
