Letter from a parent: "Hi Susan - I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful place ARCS is! My daughter is having a very good year. In fact, her best ever! She usually has a hard time feeling comfortable, but has no problem here! Her teacher has made the class a great, caring and learning community, and this sure makes a difference!
