“You guys actually care here at KnILE.  Whether its the kid’s hobbies outside of the school, or their mental health, and of course their academics.  Normal schools, typically only care about the kid finishing school, rather than succeeding.  Here the teachers actually want to help us, and they are willing to go the extra mile, where as, at normal schools they give you a sheet if you’re struggling and tell you to read that.  Also, you guys notice when one of us isn’t doing so good mentally or physically.  If it’s mentally you always try to talk to us and if we’re not up for talking you don’t force us to.  You give the kid reassurance that you’re here to help and that you actually care.  There needs to be more schools like that.  My first two weeks here I stayed in the office, and this year I sang and played guitar in front of the kids, parents, and teachers.  That’s not normal for me.  I can barely get a word out on a regular basis.  I’d say this is the best school I’ve ever been to, and I like where it’s headed and what it does for kids who struggle.  I honestly don’t see a need for change.  The teachers are great as well as the rest of the staff.  It’s about the kids here and that’s what students need.  So, thanks for caring about us.”
