    The best thing is the care they give to each child! They pay attention to the students needs and have after or before school programs and activities that helps each one by his needs. My kids only needed the TeraNova and the ISAT programs but I know others' that needed some help in reading or math and they got it! I really apreciate all their efforts and I always tell them that!
