Today Cristhian & Eddy share with us about their decision and their awesome new high school!
"We changed schools for a better future because at the high school where we were there wasn't any hope for a better future. The difference now is that our new high school is really big. There are labs for physics, biology and English. There are computers for each student in each lab. There is a cafeteria. There are 3 soccer fields and they're going to make another grass soccer field. The teachers are cool. We have electricity workshops too. Next week they are going to take us to ElectroGuayas (the electric company) so that we can learn more. What we learn in this high school is going to help us get ahead and help others!"
*Note* This school is not typical of the schools where our Starfish scholars study, but we are excited about new opportunities in the near future if the government continues these initiatives next year!
UPDATE: Starfish Scholars (& sisters!) Pamela & Lili have also switched to this new school. We feel very fortunate that our scholars have sought out this great opportunity for a better education!!
