Libertino’s Story

"I dropped out of school in 8th grade so I could work in the family restaurant. Since I have attended GoodGRADS, I have learned more in the last couple months than I ever have in the past! I like how dedicated the teachers are and how much fun it is coming to class. Along with school, I work a labor intensive job. Some days I work 14 hours, get two hours of sleep and I still come to class. I had perfect attendance in school for my first session. I have also been coming in during the school breaks for tutoring because of how important it is to me. I want to obtain my GED so that I can pursue different job opportunities."

Millie’s Story

"GoodGRADS has helped me tremendously with my English, grammar, and math skills as well as transportation and other case management issues. Their help and attention has increased my Math and Reading skills. In addition to these gains, I am also proud of my perfect attendance! When asked how I managed to have 16 weeks of perfect attendance, I said that I am determined that I want to learn, I just made up in my mind that I was going to do this. When I am done with my GED, I want to eventually become a drug counselor to help others."
