“82nd Street helps me with my grammar and with my multiplication and division.
They also help me with how to turn fraction into decimals. That’s why I love 82nd Street”
Maryan, Grade 4
“If my homework is too hard, I’ll ask my teachers for help. The teachers here are very nice…
I was a part of 82nd St since I was in Kindergarten. I had lots of friends in school and Summer School.”
Regina, Grade 7
“The reason why I came to thie summer program is I wanted to learn more about America and the world out of my country,
and also to practice my English speaking clearer. And another important reason is I HAVE A LOT OF FUN HERE.”
