“My school is filled with some of the most caring and kind teachers, students, and administrators. Around every corner is a smiling face, and in every classroom, students can find a kind-hearted teacher ready to help with anything. Whether a student is having a problem in school or outside of school, or even if they just need somebody to talk to, there is always a student or teacher that is willing to help them out. I am proud to be a part of such a close-knit community...our core values are very important, and there is a huge emphasis on being kind to others.” Alum
“The teachers all go above and beyond to help students by staying after school, holding workshops, and giving individual attention to make sure all kids have the opportunity to learn.” Parent of a current student
"You didn't just open doors, which you did, you showed me doors I didn't know existed." RISD Graduate, EWG Alum
"I often reflect on the events, decisions, and opportunities that brought me to where I am today. I find that more often than not, how I got to where I am today all stems from EWG. The support that faculty and staff provided to me during my transitional college years played a crucial role in my college success. The EWG network of alumni have opened many many doors for me and also helped me get to where I am today. If I didn’t play softball in high school I would not have attended the New England Student Leadership Conference. If I didn’t attend that conference, I would not have had the connections to get an opportunity to intern at the URI College of Engineering. If I didn’t have that internship I would not have found my passion for higher education and I would not be pursuing my M.Ed in Higher Education Counseling. If my EWG friends did not push me to go out on the night of January 27th I would not have met my boyfriend of 3 years and I would not be moving to Mass in a few months to start a life with him. If EWG was not part of my story then I would be writing an entirely different book, by an entirely different author." Alum
