It was a pleasure to bring The NiKhar Group to our district when I served at Groveport-Madison school district to assist our students who needed assistance with reading. I was excited to see the growth of students in such a short period of time. Looking forward to seeing the same results on the next TGRG assessment.

We're privileged to have been a part of your program and I want to thank you and your staff for the hard work and commitment to students.
