I must say, your speech about "fixing the person first" is very appropriate to describe Karen's experience at Prep, as Prep really helped "fix" her in providing her with a environment from which she was able to care more about school and be more engaged, be more excited about going to school, do better in school, make great friends ... but most importantly, be a happier/confident person. As a happier/confident, or "fixed" person, Karen was able to take on challenges more effectively and gain confidence and support to better succeed in her junior and senior years. Although she was accepted to her "reach school" - University of Maryland - and we doubt that she would have achieved this goal at WHRHS... this is not why we are so thrilled with her Prep experience... we are thrilled with her Prep experience because it gave her the "fix" that will continue to help her with life's future challenges.
Fixing the person first
Dear Dr. Loy - Hope you are well. You may remember, I am Karen's dad, we've met briefly.
I've been meaning to reach out to you to express how happy my wife and I are about Karen's experience at Prep. Although she started late at Prep - as a junior after leaving WHRHS - she immediately felt right at home at Prep... the teachers, counselors, coaches and administration were second to none.
We thank you and the entire Rutgers Prep team and wish you a great summer!!!
