“Thank you for EVERYTHING you have done! This will truly give her a FRESH START! I believe that having a strong, healthy confidence in one's self helps makes a strong and healthy person. I also believe that one's confidence can really make or break the whole school experience, and everyone knows that one's school experience helps set the pace for adulthood.”
-The Razvi Family
