Has Your Child's Education Fallen Behind?

Most parents don't think so, but the data says otherwise.


A Sept. 16th editorial in the Wall Street Journal made this concerning observation:

San Jose Sanchez del Rio Catholic School offers your child the opportunity to learn in a positive environment without these concerns. A school where parents can feel assured their child is getting the education that won't disappoint them.
