School Reviews

  • Recommended April 04, 2007 - ASES is a well known school by my entire family. My daughter is on her second year there. She has a speech impediment, which has improved tremendously. I am very well pleased with the progress of my daughter's educational level and the support from ASES. T. Whitehead - Posted by Parent
