What people are saying

“Hello my son Jake LOVES Synthesis! He is so excited about his classes and is all smiles after the lessons. It is wonderful to see how much he enjoys it. Today was the last day of his second session and he is already ready for the next one. Thanks so much for creating such an awesome program for these kids.”
“My daughter loves Synthesis School (and shoutout to her teacher who is absolutely amazing). I asked her what she is learning and her first answer was Leadership. And also collaboration and teamwork. I also see a lot of game theory, flexibility, pivoting, etc.”
“Peering in, we see our boy with this new and peculiar look on his face. I want to say it was like satisfaction but it was soooo much deeper than that. It was as though a new alchemy of emotions were being awakened in him. He was completely plugged into the immediacy of the experience and he was loving it!”
“My daughter is in synthesis now and loving it!!!!!We love what your doing and are so excited to be a part of it.Lucia said that "its the best class ever in the history of the world!"Synthesis very much plays to her natural strengths. She would much rather figure something out then be told and she loves challenges that make her think. Its so wonderful for her to connect with others in this way.”
“My son Christopher, 8, says he has made friends. This has not happened in any other online learning scenario for him.”
“When you lose in school, there is less of an analysis. You just go to the next thing. But at Synthesis, after every round you have time to analyze your choices and reflect to do better next time” — Otto, age 12
