My name is cody ball kid I had a learning disabilitie and the founder mrs dunn reviewed my case. She felt that there my not be much help could do for me. So mrs dunn beleived in me and gave me a trial basis by the end of the school year she was amazed of how well I was doing. 20 plus years later and I have never forgotten pace school and forgot about the kindness of mrs dunn and she my not be with us anymore but she continues teaching cause she started something that has a life of its own.
