“When students link learning to their own lives and experiences, it is remarkable how quickly they participate.” Miles Gross, ENACT Teaching Artist and Writer, “Last Comic Standing”
“While ENACT has been with our school, our overall attendance has improved, students’ test scores have been showing steady improvement, and students who in the past presented issues adapting are now enjoying school. ENACT has been a big part of improving the school’s culture and helping students feel safe and successful.” - Winston Hamman, Principal, Khalil Gibran High School
