They were enrolled in school in Lebanon but found it difficult."We could not understand or keep up with the English curriculum in Lebanon in addition that the Syrian curriculum is richer according to the information it provides."Their neighbors told them about JCC and that they teach Syrian curriculum, so they applied.
