Preston AuthorsHere’s what principal Scott Nielsen has to say about being a School Partner:

“The Big Brain Club hits the nail on the head! It is important for all of us to work hard and reach for our potential. As adults, we must embrace the message that Smart is Cool, and Dom and his team do a great job of giving this message relevance. We are lucky to have worked so closely with The Big Brain Club.”
