Review for Summit Preparatory High School, Redwood City, CA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Avoid this public charter school and it's sister school Everest Public High School. These experimental schools can and do change their focus and their philosophy on a whim. Run by enthusiastic dreamers, these schools are more pie in the sky philosophical discussions than actual good learning establishments.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Review for Hayward La Honda Music Camp, Union City, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This will be the last year that my son can go as a camper and I'm sure he will be competing with his camp friends for a job here next year. He started in 5th grade and every year he is so tired and so dirty he wants to go home, but he can't wait to get back. When we get there to drop him off we hear his name being yelled through the trees as boys come running to greet one another after a year apart. The stories of epic summer camp fun have changed over the years: the zip line, the rock wall, the pool, the antics in the cabin! The dances. The classes. Last year he took an electronic music class that for him was truly life changing.

His High School doesn't offer music. Most kids put down their instrument but this guy has found ways to keep up his musicianship just so he can play at La Honda Music Camp each and every summer. That is compelling!

The photos, videos, tshirts - all of these are prized possessions from a wonderful adventure.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing. It is a perfect gem of an organization.
