“The instruction at Porter and Chester is excellent, absolutely excellent. It was the best program that I found. I did look around Porter and Chester’s was the most inclusive, from start to finish. I’ve seen the program change, I think three times, since I’ve left, and every time they’ve updated the right things in the right areas.”
