The Health and Education Services strongly believes that many students have a tough time in public schools due to the fact of multiple factors like distraction, bullying, isolation and being made fun of, as well as other emotional and behavioral needs, which ultimately leads to being overwhelmed by the demands forced on them by public schools, which in turn leads to kids doing bad in school. Due to these facts, they have set out to remedy this, as they currently operate 3 private schools, two of them for ages 6 – 14 and one for ages 13 – 21, which are students who have behavioral and emotional troubles.
