When I watched the video, I actually felt chills from the excitement of knowing that a school of this level exists. Made me so hopeful that my grandson will have an opportunity to do all the things in a school that he is interested in. He is great at playing chess. Maybe he will have the opportunity to even mentor other interested students.
