My son started after attending kindergarten through the 8th grade in the a school district. It was a rough year and after a thorough search I found Pacific Learning Center and the Hansons. We had tried another private school, but failed after two months.

The striking difference between the public school system and the “other school” was the acceptance and the understanding of who my son is. Mr. Hanson stated that a child cannot learn if the child is on alert all the time with his/her surroundings. The child needs a place of understanding and an acceptance of who she/he is and then and only then can they learn. This is what has happened with my son, who will be a senior this year. At first the plan was to transition him to public school again and PLC would have supported that idea, however my son blossomed and most of anger outbursts were less and less, his confidence gradually increased to the point of welcoming a new family and giving them a tour this year at open house. He was proud of his school, something I doubt he would have participated in at his home public school. I am truly grateful for PLC for teaching him, not only English, math, and history, but how to conduct himself in social situations and be proud of who he is.
