People are Talking about the K & M Center
“My family’s experience with the K&M Center has been very positive. Our daughter Hayley began second grade having trouble with reading and phonics. Her biggest struggle came from sounding out words and reversing letters while reading. Because of this difficulty, she lacked confidence in her academic abilities and became frustrated when faced with new challenges. Through her work with the K&M Center staff, Hayley has learned to properly identify sounds and decode multi-syllable words. More importantly, her confidence has grown to the point where she no longer gets frustrated with unfamiliar words or activities. Instead, she shows whole-hearted effort and determination with each task, even when the material is challenging for her. Hayley now enjoys learning and feels successful every time she accomplishes new academic goals!”
"Kristen & Krystle,
I wanted to drop you both a note and thank you again for the work that you did with my daughter over the last couple years. We just received my daughter's STAR report and -- for the first time since she began taking the tests in 2nd grade -- she scored ADVANCED in English-Language Arts and Proficient in Math. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the patience, love and understanding you have shown my daughter over the years."
Just returned from parent teacher conference. Betsy is really doing well. The teachers raved about her study skills and wanted to know who we had sent her to. We can't thank you guys enough for all your hard work with Betsy. You guys have been such a major piece of her treatment plan and we are grateful for the emotional and academic support you have provided for her. She is a confident, happy little girl that is very aware of how hard work produces results. Have a great weekend.”
"Dear Karen and Melissa,
Thank you for the opportunity to work at the K&M Center! In an education world that can be dominated by a myriad of politics and bureaucratic systems, it was refreshing to walk into a place where the main focus is on children. Everything that is done at the K&M center exemplifies cura personalis: care of the entire person. Every child that walks through K&M's doors is treated with the utmost respect, provided with the opportunity to express themselves, and taught the skill sets they need to unlock their fullest potential. Thank you for taking the risk all those years ago, and setting the foundation to change the lives of children who are not receiving the kind of support they need in a traditional classroom.
All the Best"

"Dear Karen and Kristen,
Sarah had her Wildwood Gateway yesterday and she did an amazing job. I really just wanted to thank both of you for helping us get to this point. I couldn't help remember that meeting we had when Sarah was in 7th grade and they told me she might not make it to high school at Wildwood. Well, she did make it and I want you to know how grateful we are to both of you! You have helped Sarah, and me, so much! We look forward to starting up again in August.”
"I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how PROUD I am of Megan for the student she is this year! She has been ON TOP OF IT! Her reading and writing skills have improved so much and she is such a pleasure to have in class. She volunteers daily and has been enjoying the process of writing daily and reading our first novel this year. Whatever you guys did over the summer...THANK YOU! I am so lucky to have her again"
