This was an amazing occasion, there many parents drumming, dancing and glorifying God and appreciating the school management and all those who stand in supporting this vision. Yes, have a reason to thank God and all those have made possible for children to acquire high school education. The school yes started in September 2012 and ended July 2013. The school enrolment this gone school 600 students from K-II to 12th grade, and we grateful that we had a successful school year again. The kids at the Carolyn A. Miller School had the opportunity to interact students of the Laurence High School in California, and this was very interesting in that the two schools were able to exchanged Pen Pal letters as well as autobiography. It has really been a great experience for our students to be able learn about other kids and as well as culture. The family of Laurence high school is so impress by this interaction and hoping that is can cover the whole students' community.
