I believe SMART led me onto a path to success. I was accepted into the program in the 5th grade and I had no clue how much the program would change my future. I received a full scholarship to a private school that I would never have even considered. I owe my academic success to the SMART program. I have met friends from the program that I continue to keep close relationships with. The program showed me that if I tried I could acheive my goals. I now attend a private high school with a large sum of financial aid. I would not be here today without the help of the SMART program. The staff while I was attending the SMART program helped me greatly. I had a tutor who helped me with my homework and a mentor who helped me relieve stress and act as a big brother. Nonoko was my favorite staff member. She was there throughout my whole middle school education. I looked up to her. She was constantly there to support me and to give me a smile whenever I needed one. There are way too many memories to recall here but to sum it all up; it was a life-changing experience and I loved it.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
successfully attending and graduating from a private middle school. Also, in getting into International High School which has an IB program.
