Enrolling NOW for AWESOMENESS!

"Some of the biggest highlights of our school year were the classes by William at Think Tank Kids! Our three boys really enjoyed the Homeschool PE class. They kept active, made new friends, and could not have had more fun (Where else can you bring Nerf weapons to class?)! The Robot Gladiators and Air Rockets were hands on, creative, and a big hit as well!" - Karen
