“I cannot express how impressed I am with your program. Our STAR results are outstanding and I am convinced without EXCEL we would be struggling to meet our goals. The spiraling piece that is built in…is what makes this so effective. If I ever move schools and my district does not provide this program, I would purchase it with my own money. Thank you for a wonderful program.” — Elementary Teacher, San Juan, CaliforniaFor more glowing reports about Excel Math from the teachers who use it and to see some of the impressive test results, visit www.excelmath.com.
