From a proud parent
"My daughter has been at Head of The Class since she was an early toddler. This year, she is preparing for graduation, but she has been prepared to do so for the past two years. She knows her colors, shapes, address, telephone number and she can easily write her name. I was proud of her when she recognized her sounds, but even prouder when she started to read and recognize words in short stories. She proud of her work and she's proud of Head of The Class. So am I."
