Hear From Our Happy Clients

“As educators, it is our job to prepare our students for the rigors of college and their careers. The current workforce environment is ever changing, which makes our job more challenging than ever before! We try to foster skills for jobs that our students will one day have, yet those jobs have not even been created. Our SmartLab HQ Stem Center is the perfect blend of standards-based education with the skills needed to be successful for tomorrow. Students are continually engaged and are working on problem-solving skills and grit daily.”

Principal, California Elementary School | Public | California, MO
Marcus Diamond

“The SmartLab HQ has opened a whole new way of learning and developing career paths for our high school students. We have been able to open them up new career ideas that many have never considered or even knew existed. In our lab the students have become licensed drone pilots who are working in the field, are coding their own apps to solve equations, have developed websites for outside businesses, and have decided to go to college for engineering in various fields. The kids in our lab are truly making life decisions about their future careers. None of that would have happened before you installed this lab.”

“Our Elementary and Middle School SmartLab HQs are a perfect fit for Denver Academy. Our mission is to serve diverse learners, providing a student-centered, differentiated, and transformative education. In keeping with DA’s mission, this program provides us with the ability to individualize learning for each student, support them in areas in which they struggle, and provide challenges in areas where they excel.”

“Our gifted students use the SmartLab HQ with their homeroom class as well as during their pullout gifted class. Their critical- and creative-thinking skills are challenged daily. The result? We’ve seen an increase in standardized testing scores and, overall, student behavior has improved.”
