BROOKSIDE

Offers an outstanding core curriculum for students junior

kindergarten (4-year olds) through 5th grade, complemented

by hands-on instruction in computers, music and visual studies

have exams, and it's not like
attending a 15 1/2 week-long
class," M3. George added. "But
you will be brought into a college-
like structure, get a view of how
you function in a college class-
room and get to deal with in-
structors."
Attending summer-school pro-
grams also gives students the op-
portunity to participate in that
famous business buzzword: net-
working. Ms. George said in

terms of future education, stu-
dents who prove to be top-notch
stand out in a crowd, and uni-
versity professors remember
those students.
"Many colleges aren't that
quick to offer college credit for
programs that are primarily de-
signed for high school students,"
Ms. George said. "A lot of the pro-
gram is enrichment (of prior
learning) or getting into the col-
lege life." ❑
