I got very positive feedback from Ilia and his parents. He really progressed in his English. He was also really involved in lessons and activities during the entire program. It is difficult to engage children in the educational process (especially on summer holidays) and the parents were happy to know that Ilia was interested in his lessons and activities. Moreover, he liked the school’s location and the parents were glad to know that he is so close to nature and breathes fresh air.

This was the best summer experience I've had. The program was very intimate, we had 10 students in our group. My English has improved tremendously. We visited New York City, Harvard University and played in fun basketball games.


Shanghai, China

I study English at school, but we don’t ever do presentations, so I got to practice my English but also learned how to do presentations. I think it is a good summer camp. I like that we could go to NYC because that was really fun. I also liked the activities like kayaking, hiking, and shopping.


Bogota, Colombia

It was my first time in USA. I wanted to improve conversation, practice, and gain confidence speaking. I think I improved because I experienced so many things. I liked the places we went. I liked the after class activities and program. Times Square was the best. We also went shopping!


Seoul, South Korea

The classmates, roommate, and teacher is very helpful and friendly. I wanted to speak English. I like to read English books. They help me. I enjoy the American people and environment.  I like the sports very much. I can play basketball, badminton, tennis, table tennis, kayaking, etc. The Storm King School is so fun. I think this summer is perfect. Next year I’m coming too.
