“One of the best ways we can engage our students is through the arts, and we just don’t have the funds to hire instructors for that. We can’t wait for World Upside Down to launch so that we can offer our students a complete arts education as a part of our core curriculum.”

-Alina Matos, Principal and Owner of Centro Educativo Los Prados
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic





“In my after-school learning center, I’m always looking for new ways to allow my students to develop fine motor skills, independent thinking, and individual creativity. Even if my students’ parents had the money to pay for private lessons, they pick their kids up after work, so there’s just no time. But if I could offer my students arts classes as a part of the after-school program, it would truly be life-changing for me and my students!”

-Addis Perez, Owner of PAAD Learning Center
Santiago, Dominican Republic







“Our school wasn’t able to participate in World Upside Down’s pilot project because we didn’t have the technology available at the time, but after watching a number of the video classes, I fell in love with the concept. We’re just waiting for the video curriculum to be created so that we can offer the students at our school the best arts education they could get anywhere on the island.”

-Allison Hale, Director of Las Palmas Christian School
San Pedro de Macoris, Dominican Republic
