Dear Penny, Catharine and Staff, Thank you just doesn't seem adequate for the difference you have made in my son's life. You have changed the direction his education has taken. Thank you so much for the extra care you have given. God Bless,

You offer an amazing program Thanks you for providing a relaxing and caring atmosphere for your students and their families. We appreciate everything you have done for our daughter over the last two years. We wish you and your staff all the best.
I have some good news I'd like to share with you. I tested your son today for reading and he is sitting at a level 18 (the average for grade 2 is 20 at this time of year).....wow!! He is almost at grade level...how exciting! He was so proud of himself today, it was amazing to see. For the rest of the day, he listened better and was more attentive to his tasks. It's amazing how confidence can be a motivation. Have a great day and I will continue to keep you posted. Thanks,
