This is the first time we’ve had the Maze class with our 6th graders. They were all carrying their pizza boxes out to the bus yesterday and they were really excited to show them to me. The teachers said it was awesome and that the kids were more engaged during that lesson than they ever are normally!!!
Academic Director, Stonebridge World School

Your educators were amazing! The activities they led for both groups received high remarks from both students and the parents. I appreciated the inquiry based instruction, and hands-on learning.
