Why Join Puente

What Means Puente to me ?


By:Joel Grande

Puente is an award-winning program that has helped thousands of students reach their dreams of college success through its innovative combination of accelerated writing instruction, intensive academic counseling and mentoring.


To me puente means a big experience because I will pass two years right there and I will be learning new things reading books and expending my vocabulary.It could be sometimes hard but I know I can push my self and progress.Step by step I will be a great writer and by being on that class I could learn how to understand people that speak fast in English.When I came here I did not know there was this program called Puente. Puentistas are not only hispanics they can be from different countries while those people know the enough English and they wanna learn more about it they would go to the program.

I get in by actually trying my best almost every day in class I’ve being studying English exactly for more than one year but in the Puente program I will learn more  and to do that I have to pay attention every day of class.

My plans after finish high school are get into a good college and if I can try to get a part time job to do not depend always from my family.
