Caleb is 13-years-old and lives with his mother in East Hartford. He’s been attending the Woodland School, but is looking forward to beginning classes shortly at East Hartford Middle School. Unlike some boys his age, Caleb really enjoys going to school. He likes the daily interaction with his fellow students. And he’s very much stimulated by the intellectual challenges his classes offer – so much so that he’s worked hard to earn impressive grades on his recent report cards.
