“Our Experience at Webber was far beyond what I have expected. The curriculum and program that was implemented allowed our children to explore media beyond their wildest dreams under a very ridge and frugal budget. The instructors are very knowledgeable and great with utilizing instructional strategies that are research based that keeps and maintains student engagement. Our children created movies, edited , and filmed themselves. The students were able to record all school events through their knowledge learned in class with minimal supervision. I am beyond impressed and hope that we can expand our program to incorporate the Animation component and training component for our teachers next school year.”
