ASSETS Learning Center offers the students a great learning environment with supportive teacher who will go out of their way to help their students succeed. The campus is clean and well taken care of. The school offers Teen Leadership courses followed up with ABC (Adventure Based Counselling). ABC allows students to work on team building skills. The school strongly agrees with parents' participation and involvement in student activities. I strongly rate this school an 8.5 on a 1-10 scale.
