In the words of a Dragon Parent...
In conversations with parents of prospective students, we hear again and again, “He’s doing well, but he’s so bored at his current school.” Or, “She’s just not motivated. I know she could do so much better.” When they read our literature and come to meet with us, they remark on our warmth and sense of community. “We certainly were able to get a feel for the passion everyone has for teaching and learning (even while playing cards, one could feel the camaraderie).” They almost always say, “I wish I could have gone to a school like this.”
And when their children have enrolled they tell us:
“Max was late this morning because he and his dad were so absorbed in an intense discussion about the gospels, their accuracy, the sociopolitical roots of Christianity, and the alleged divinity of Jesus. Wow! Our jaws are bruised from hitting the floor so much. Keep up the great work.”
“I mean really, how many kids go into withdrawal when school is out?”
“What an unexpected delight and surprise Dragon has been. All we were looking for in working through a horrible time was relief. And we found a gem. Our daughter is so appreciated there, which has done wonders for her self-esteem. I believe deeply in your programming and approach.”
“The Dragon has had an impact on that young man that will last him a lifetime. You have changed his life.”
“As I told mum last night, “We’re lucky to have found The Dragon when we did — it’s going to become a benchmark for education and it’ll be a LONG waiting list.”
“I can’t begin to tell you what The Dragon has meant to me. Your belief in Michael and the constant support and love you gave to him helped him to know what a wonderful and worthwhile person he is. He has truly flowered under your care from a lost soul into a strong and thoughtful human being a whole person. Thanks alone will never be enough.”
“It is a wonderful experience to have a child who loves going to school every day.”
