Feedback from parents

Quote Icon My daughter is doing so much better just after being at St. Piers for a year. The improvement is exceptional. She still have her moments but they are to be expected and are outweighed by the positives. God bless all the staff who are so patient and dedicated to helping the students. Thank-you!.
