"I have thought much about our community partners during School Closure and how they have had to pivot just like we have. I admire the tenacity of these partners. It is not surprising, as I see how committed they are, but still I am amazed."

Principal, Hawthorne School District

"I am very appreciative of your organization and the resources that were provided for our students while they were at home with distance learning. All primary students benefited. Thank you so much for the work you do, for promoting the arts to our schools and helping build a brighter tomorrow for the students whose lives you touch."

Sylvia Valles Principal, Hobart Elementary School, Los Angeles

"I've especially talked to principals of schools where change is needed, where school culture is not where it should be. I've shared with them how the arts can be a game-changer for children and for a school, and Dream A World Education's role in doing this at the schools I've led."

Principal, Los Angeles Unified School District

"I have shared that having DAWE has built community, strengthened our arts program and improved our students’ self-esteem and behavior."

Principal, Hawthorne School District

"As a long-time professional in arts education, I am inspired and impressed with the high quality of the artists who guide the children and the depth and excellence they achieved in terms of educational standards. The on-line version lost none of the vibrant energy and concepts.
I feel hope for our future world!."
