"The service you provide in meeting our demands and requests is second to none."
David Gillis Career Advisor Steveston Sr. Secondary School
"I have a few students who are so disconnected from school that they do nothing most of the time in most of their classes - including mine. Well, when we started the unit on Career Cruising something changed...I attribute their engagement to the authenticity of the work and the quality of the Career Cruising web site."

"My own three children all did it at home - grade 7, 9 and 11 - and all 3 of them spent 3 - 4 hours on it!!! They all enjoyed it and continue to go back! That's what I am telling the teachers - because the kids' words carry lots of weight!!!"
