A Word from the Students: Cassidy Johnson and Curtis Gilbert Speak About the Integrated Studies Program

This program isn’t just another   program.  It is a place where you can forget your problems and step out of the world for a     second, a place for you to be safe and forget all your fears.  We are like a giant family. I hated     coming to school and if I did attend class, I would not          participate in anything! After hearing about the program from my  parents, I didn’t want to  enroll, but now that I am in the ISP, I realize that it is one of the best things that could have    happened to me. Now I attend class everyday.  I do not skip any    classes and I actually enjoy   coming to school. I’ve come so far from where I used to be.  I’ve got an extremely wonderful         relationship with one of the teachers and that has impacted my life like crazy. The  progress that I have made in this program is unbelievable. I am grateful every day for the opportunity. 

Like my classmate Cassidy, this   program has given me the opportunity to make new friends, not only with the  students, but with the teachers as well.  I’ve been a lot more respectful toward my peers.  The things that we do in this program, like the lunches and activities, bring us together as a family. 

Before I started this program, I never came to school.  I hated school and thought it was      pointless. Because of two   caring teachers, I see how much fun school can be and how it is a place where I can become a better person.
