|ETS has been such a gem in my education. I am so grateful that I have this opportunity to study these books and ideas that our culture has labeled "too hard" or "unnecessary" for middle or high school students. Whether the the said books and ideas be Euclidean geometry, singing in harmony, or Greek philosophy, Mr. Hinrichs has recognized their value in a wholesome education,|
Mr. Hinrichs's teaches in a manner that helps cultivate appreciation and enthusiasm for the subject at hand. His examples, be they parties vs muggings, or romantic roadkill, offer an witty way to grasp some of the concepts in the seemingly daunting reading lists, and bring life and meaning to every classroom discussion.
When I first joined, I thought one would sit in for class, give a brief nod to fellow students, and go home. And I am so glad that I was wrong. ETS provides a wonderful community of smart, thoughtful, caring young men and women who are on this journey with you. I know quite a few students and alumni from various years, and they seem more like family than classmates, and Mr. H is more of an uncle than just a teacher. The events held are a great way to have fun dancing, singing, and competing with friends in a very constructive way.
I hope you join this community, for it is definitely helping me to grow in mind and soul, and prepare to set out on the pilgrimage of Christian adulthood.
