    I believe Learning Works is a great program for those kids that can not attend regular school and are dropouts. The people there especially the founder makes these kids feel important and it give them a second chance. I sent my step son there after he came to live with us at the age of 19 hadn't finish even ninth grade with in one year he received all his credits and graduated.

    This is not a good place. I go there for tutoring and they will not allow me to do my homework they give me a load of other work to do instead. I do not recommend this place at all. My grades went down the drain when i started coming here.
