Review for Kids Excel El Paso Inc, El Paso, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

What a wonderful program! I can't say enough about it. I am a teacher at Putnam Elementary. Kids EXCEL started last year (2009-2010), and our school was fortunate enough to get to go to The Plaza Theater to perform. The majority of these students had never even seen the theater before, but to get to actually be on the stage with an audience was an experience they will never forget.
My students look forward to Kids EXCEL every week. It teaches them discipline, listening skills, the ability to follow directions, and gives them much needed exercise in a very fun way. Our weeks consist of testing, testing, and more testing. This is a program that gives them a break from that monotonous routine. These students are missing out on the arts because of TAKS, benchmarks, and weekly assessments. This is their one reprieve.
