School Reviews

After struggling socially and academically with the public school system and its large sizes my son is now coming into his own after only a year at Mentoring Academy. He finally has space to breathe and is scoring straight 'A's across the board. As a black boy, we found in previous schools, the expectations were unfortunately low. Here the expectations are high yet the emotional well-being of the child is at the forefront leading to a relaxed and happy working environment. Highly recommend.
