Dr. Colangelo said of the trip, “I found the teachers to be highly motivated and committed to high ability students.  In my discussion with students, they liked the academic challenge of the school and the relationships with their teachers…I really enjoyed meeting the students and teachers.  The building/hallways are colorful with works from the students.”
