“ We often look for the opportunities to pour into the academic aspects without taking the other interests of students into consideration. Beyond 8 addresses the needs and wants of the students from a holistic perspective and provides opportunities for them to thrive in many areas. This is a program that I can see becoming a powerful tool to keep students engaged in continual learning processes

As Sir Ken Robinson says, we treat education like manufacturing when it's closer to organic farming. Crops have different needs at different times. To flourish they must be fulfilled. The same can be extended to education too. At a time when traditional schooling is based on standardization and conformity, we must recognize that human communities thrive on diversity; we must, therefore, celebrate our passions and differences.
