Some OHHS parents' reviews of ACE Test Prep:
Kim Eby
3 months ago
We are very happy with our experience with ACE Test Prep.  After the first day of class, my son said, "Why didn't anyone ever tell me these things!"  Ultimately he improved his overall ACT score by 5 points and was very excited since this will open up more opportunities for college acceptance and scholarships.

A year ago our son scored a 19 on the ACT.  Last month he scored a 29!  ACE Test Prep truly made a difference!  We’ll once again be using their services in 2021 to help our son reach his goal of a 30+ composite score.
