  • Of all companies I have worked with, Pensarus was my number one choice.  Pensarus met with my staff, discussed collaboratively the focus of our project, and explained in detail the upcoming professional development training.  Our staff appreciated that Pensarus was willing to tailor the curriculum to our population’s individual needs.  It’s hard to find a company that is willing to spend so much time and energy making sure to understand the culture of your school.
