"WIT was a wonderful experience for my daughters - it taught them life skills, and Tips, that a school will not incorporate in an academic schedule.These skills go far in the years to come when you are making connections for jobs or in a professional life. WIT serves a greater need in today’s more competitive times and encourages “giving back” which should be a part of every teenager's education."
