“I have had significant background in the electronics industry and years working overseas with third-world kids. My son Matthew is in his fourth year at Cal Poly and counts the Endeavor Academy as the most important time spent at Paso High. My point is that the academic preparation was obviously very significant, but also the social interaction with Steve Kliewer and his classmates made this class most significant. This time was so memorable that it is the standard to which he measures all other educational experiences. Cal Poly has provided some hands on, but nothing compared to what he got in the Endeavour Academy. In fact, he wants to move to another institution with better "Endeavour-like" instruction."
