Today we toured a private independent school (College Prep) as another HS option for Dai Bee. I immediately fell in love with the campus – oh right, I’m not going there! The campus by itself looks like a ski lodge (Dai Bee’s words). With the beautiful surrounding landscape, the campus is tucked in a location right off of the freeway. After gathering at the theatre with parent speakers and student panels, families were divided into smaller groups. We followed a couple of students to two mock classes: math and language (mandarin).

There were seven families in our group. Our first class was Math. Students were given a worksheet with problems to work on collaboratively. After a few minutes, each was asked to go to the board and share their answers. Though a couple had wrong answers, but their explanations gave other students look at the problems differently. At that moment, I found Dai Bee fitting in that environment. There would be enough opportunities and academic rigor that will push him to rise up to the challenge. We shall wait and see…
