As parents of two boys we are always amazed

As parents of two boys we are always amazed when our friends tell us what life is like with girls. The energy differential, the attention shifts, the need for movement and speed – these are real issues when you live with boys. PBA understands how to teach boys and can craft a class schedule and routine to mesh with “boy energy” and maximize its usefulness in learning. Mixed-sex schools frequently separate boys and girls for math and sciences – to benefit the girls. I’ve come to believe that similar separation would be valuable for boys in language arts, where their interest and attention require different triggers. With PBA, the boys will be in an optimal learning environment – for boys.
