VOICES OF OUR COMMUNITY

“We moved to Charleston from the Northeast, and the entire school community could not have been more welcoming to my family. I am grateful for an easy transition.”

“There is much to learn from the stories of those who came before us – if captured fully and cast in an honest light. There is also no better audience for these stories than children. Their minds are incredibly elastic and, as stewards of the future, they perhaps more than anyone need to learn from the invaluable lessons history has to offer."

Teacher, History Department

“PG not only sparked my interest in the international community but it also taught me how to bridge relationships between people who are different from me.”
