I have a son that was headed in the wrong path, I actually gave up on my own son crying hopelessly every night, my SON HAD BEEN ATTENDING Les Peters for a few months and thanks to a teacher by the name of Mr. Bates, my son has made a complete 360 turn around, it is like magic, I want to thank Les Peters and Mr. Bates personally for changing my son around. For parents that have lost hope, send you child to this school and let their miracle teachers help them, Mr.Bates saved my sons life, THANKYOU!
