Horrible Program
  Guest
This place is a scam. Very unprofessional staff that don't care about kids or parents in the least. Much better programs out there to help with reading for a lot less money. Stay away!! More >

Excellence!

Well worth the time and tuition. Maybe it's locational but my daughters enjoyed the classes and I appreciated the teacher for her patience and enthusiasm. See you next summer! More >
