Student and Parent Success Stories

Bethany at the Covington branch has been a fantastic music teacher! I commute from Folsom each week for my piano lessons there and then head to Mandeville for my daughter's ballet class with Ms. Savannah, and it's definitely worth the trip! Gracie loves getting her tickets and saving up for treasure chest prizes!
