It has been an absolute pleasure. My son’s teacher is amazing. I have never had such an experience as to have an educator be able to be impartial, firm, caring, communicative and be able to command the respect of her students.
I also believe that the basketball program that you have and the coach was fantastic with my son. He was able to get through to him so that he could learn how to not let his frustration get in the way of his goals and successes.
The staff at the Learning Center was the first experience that I had where the children were spoken to, given parameters, were not “babied or coddled” but nor were they barked at either. My son’s self esteem has blossomed in his time at The Learning Center and CAT Brandywine. I noticed it while attending one of the basket ball games. It wasn’t just my son that responded to this approach. Your students were very polite and respectful to me. It made me feel welcome and also made me feel like my son was a true part of your community.
I have never seen this dynamic at any other alternative school that my son has attended or we have considered. You have an incredible program that you all should be wonderfully proud of." - A Montgomery County School District Parent
