    Hate it. The Director just like to threaten the children with kicking them out from day one. Steven one of the mentors likes to send the entire class to the office and then get them suspended and kicked out from the program. The Director ,Assistant Director and Mentors are not fit to run a program like that. My son got kicked out without a warning, notification not even a phone call to let me know there was a situation in their school. Rhey just unilaterally decided to kick a child without even a notification. When i called them they just lied to cover themselves. .... they need to be fired and a investigation should be put in place every year to avoid discrimination again....Avoid that place.
