“The Strategies class changed my life forever.  My behavior has been better toward my parents and I have been doing better in school.”

"We'll still be talking about this program 10 years from now"

“Taking Strategies for Success was one of the best choices I’ve ever made.  Strategies can best be described as more than a class.  It’s more like an opportunity to gain tips and advice that you can use your entire life.”


"Why isn't this program in every high school?"

“I learned how to be a better person.”
