Student Testimonials

My favorite part of the summer was winning kickball against older kids - it was a victory for the ages!
Our teacher Ms. Jamila helped us use our voice and words to express what we truly feel as Palestinians through poetry.
I really liked the Socratic Seminars part. It was fun to have some debates and share our opinions on different subjects.
The swimming pool was so much fun, and we got the idea for our end of class video project while playing in the pool.
