Review for Kids Excel El Paso Inc, El Paso, TX, USA
I first saw Kid's Excel perform at a district wide Principal's meeting. The students were from a campus I was previously a Principal at. I was thrilled at seeing them rise to a high level of performance. They had matured so much since I had seen them the year before, and I credited
their participation in Kid's Excel to a large degree.
Now as a Principal at a different campus where Kid's Excel works, I see the same maturity in our students. I have also observed that our children have so much more confidence in themselves. They present in front of cafeteria size audiences with little problem.
I will continue providing my fourth grade students with these experiences and highly encourage other Principals to allow their students to participate.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Students interact with adults in a more mature manner.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Allow third, fourth AND fifth graders to participate for three years in a row.
Alicia, Wouldn't that be nice if we could serve more children at your school. Maybe someday we will find a way to serve all the 4th graders in El Paso, and then we can expand to other grade levels!
