Inspiring Families

“From the start, I knew college was important, but PIQE taught me why and how to help my children get a college education. I’m happy to share that my oldest daughter graduated from UC Berkeley and earned a master’s degree from Loyola University. My second daughter will be graduating this year from Georgetown University and my oldest son is in his second year at UC Berkeley. My youngest son is a sophomore at Animo Pat Brown High School and even though this is my fourth and last child going through high school, I knew there was much more I needed to learn. So, I decided to take another PIQE workshop. Success will always be there for those who want to take that extra step.”

“Neither my wife nor I grew up in America and as a result, we know very little about how the education system works here. While we try to figure out bits and pieces of information mainly by researching on the internet and talking with friends and other parents, we don’t really know what we don’t know. PIQE gave us a variety of information that is critical for parents to know. Once I came, I realized the enormous value of the PIQE classes, and I have attended all since then. We have two sons, a seventh grader at Rancho Milpitas Middle and a fifth grader at John Sinnott Elementary. I encourage more parents to take advantage of future PIQE workshops and utilize the important information PIQE offers to help our children succeed.”

“I am a single mother who grew up in China and Japan, so the American educational system was unfamiliar and challenging to navigate. I did not have much confidence about parenting my child, however, PIQE helped boost my confidence as a parent. I encourage all parents to enroll in a PIQE program because it allowed me to better support my child’s education.”

“Our dreams for our children were that they would get into a university and that they wouldn’t stumble in any way. We received a lot of help from the classes we took from the Parent Institute for Quality Education on how to talk to other parents on what grades are and how to ask for help. We can now thankfully say that both of our children were able to attend university-one graduating from University of California San Diego and one graduating from Cal State San Marcos”

“I have two children a 15 year old boy and an 11 year old girl. When I received the invitation, I did know of the PIQE program so I visited their website and found it very interesting. I decided to participate and I received very important information that could help support my children into getting into college. Before taking the PIQE course I was very nervous for not knowing how to support my son after high school but by taking the course it gave us confidence in knowing the steps to follow and now my son and I can feel confident together.”
