From fundamentals to flourishing.

Best in Class LogoWe help students develop the skills and knowledge they need for a bright future. Best in Class students benefit from individual attention, active instruction in small groups, and engaging course material aligned with common standards.

Our programs move K-12 students of all abilities towards the top of their class, but our mission doesn’t end there.

At Best in Class, our mission is twofold: build better teachers; build successful students. Education is the door to the future. We want to leave a legacy and a lasting positive impact on our students and teachers alike. We know how important great teachers are and we want to support their individual growth, so that they can continue to change the lives of their students.

Kumon Math & Reading Center

Math. Reading. Confidence.

Welcome to Kumon, the world’s largest after-school math and reading program. The Kumon Method has helped millions of children achieve more than they ever thought they could. We believe it can help your child, too. At Kumon, your child will build skills that lead to success inside and outside the classroom.

Unlike tutoring sessions, Kumon helps children learn how to learn on their own, and develops strong academic skills. Our students gain a sense of confidence that will help them in the classroom and beyond.

Mathnasium

MathnasiumLogoEvery day, students around the world attend Mathnasium learning centers to boost their math skills. We are highly specialized; we teach only math. Members usually attend two or three times a week for about an hour.

Our goal is to significantly increase your child’s math skills, understanding of math concepts, and overall school performance, while building confidence and forging a positive attitude toward the subject.

Children don’t hate math.
They hate being confused and intimidated by math.
With understanding comes passion.
And with passion comes growth—a treasure is unlocked.

Our approach is to use sophisticated techniques to determine, with great accuracy, what a student knows and does not know. Next, we tailor-make a personalized and prescriptive learning program. Each student follows the program with the help of specially trained Mathnasium math tutors who provide instruction—and lots of warm encouragement. For proof of progress, we rely on the student’s report card, independent tests, and parent testimony to measure the speed and magnitude of improvement in math skills, numerical thinking, and attitude.

One World Learning Center

One World Learning Center is committed to providing a quality, educational program that promotes high self-esteem, the joy of learning, and an environment of respect and dignity for each other. We believe without question that the early years are THE most important in the social, emotional, and intellectual development of a child’s life. The center provides an environment that is not only safe, positive, and nurturing, but that will also give your child the opportunity to explore, learn, make friends, and most of all to feel successful. We believe that all children deserve to be treated with unconditional love and respect and that each one of them is a unique individual. We believe that the parents are the first and most important teachers in a child’s life and we strive through communication and support to form a partnership between parents and staff for the good of the whole child.

The Center is licensed through the Washoe County Department of Social Services for ages infancy through Kindergarten. Each of our classrooms is designed by age and developmental needs of the children in that classroom. Our classrooms are staffed above Social Services requirements in order to provide the highest quality program. Our curriculum includes language arts, math, hands on science, social studies, Spanish, music, and art with an emphasis on environmental awareness.

We provide an all day State Licensed Kindergarten program with teacher child ratios less than half that provided by the public school system.
Our philosphy is “A Child’s Play is a Child’s Work”.

We realize that our teachers are our number one asset to providing a quality program for children. One World Children’s Center provides higher wages and excellent benefits compared to the majority of other preschools in the area in order to attract and maintain the best qualified staff. We strongly believe that children deserve to have teachers who are capable and caring, who take pride in their job, and whose values and character enable them to be excellent role models.

Purple Door Preschool

Purple Door Preschool’s philosophy is to help children grow cognitively by supporting self-regulation in the classroom. Children need to have the opportunity to soar into the future they deserve. Each child is an amazing individual. We want your child to have a sense of self-worth, sense of trust and curiosity, have the capacity to play with times of solitude and explore in a rich environment. Pre-schoolers use their senses to get to know the world around them. Our school will give them the ability to think critically, solve problems and live in an increasingly interconnected society, all skills needed to move into the 21st century. We want them to have a deep and meaningful relationship with our teachers. Our staff will extend reciprocal respect between teacher, parent and child, which will lead to dignity for all.

The School Day

Purple Door Preschool is a center based program with an emphasis on play. Through play, our students will learn all the academic tools necessary to start kindergarten including letter recognition, phonics and numbers. Our students will not be confined to one classroom, they will move from center to center with the same teacher and same ten children throughout the day. All children are given the opportunity to utilize twelve unique spaces throughout the week.
