"It's no secret that my son was really struggling with school prior to this year. At the age of 5 he had a number of labels slapped on him. I was told that I needed to medicate, and he would come home every day and tell me how stupid and naughty he thought he was. He hated school, all during the preschool years. Every day was an absolute struggle.
After the first month of Kindergarten at Awakening Spirit school, he came home from school and “read” me a book he wrote, and the book is all about how much he loves school now. Then he talked my ear off non stop for an hour. I couldn’t even respond because I was so close to tears.
After his first full school year, we can see how he has blossomed into a awesome learner, he is EXCITED about going to school every day and going on learning adventures weekly. We have seen his self esteem soar and I have not heard the stupid word come out of his mouth again. My husband and I have since decided to pull our older son from traditional school, and enroll him at AWS as well.
We are in full support of the Awakening Spirit School mission. What a wonderful world this will be when God’s lessons of love, compassion and grace are absorbed and re-taught by the next generation."
