Best in Class Education Center (Best in Class), a top-of-the-line education enrichment program that focuses on math and English, is proud to announce its newest opening in Katy, Tex.

The second location in the city will be operating under the ownership of education advocate in Katy, Ira Giri. The center, located at 4950 Katy Gaston Road, will be opening Saturday, September 19th with a grand opening celebration. Grand opening activities will take place at the new center from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Families are encouraged to tour the facility and take advantage of free assessment tests ($50 value), two free lessons in either math or English Enrichment, and a waived registration fee ($50 value). Throughout the day, gifts will be distributed to all kids taking the assessment test.

“Ira has been such an asset to Best in Class with her passion for education and her desire to do all she can for the community,” said Hao Lam, Founder and CEO of Best in Class. “The dedication she’s shown toward improving the quality of life for parents and students in Katy is evident through her constant adaptation to fit the needs of the community. We’re excited to see the academic accomplishments she’ll achieve with the addition of her second location.”

Giri emigrated from India to the United States in March of 2000 with the hope of providing her two children with better education opportunities and a higher quality of life. The Giri family moved to Katy because of Ira’s husband’s promotion in 2010.

When she started tutoring at her son’s day care, she discovered her intense love of early childhood education and wanted to make a career out of her passion. She began looking extensively into different center options and was drawn to the fantastic curriculum offered by Best in Class. The material was something she would teach to her own children and she wanted to be able to share that knowledge with the community.

“I wanted to further create a sense of community for the brand in Katy,” said Giri of her second opening. “Our growth was starting to exceed the size of our center and expansion seemed like the best choice to help as many students as possible.”

The brand’s ability to grow and develop successfully in both new and existing markets is due to the recognizable achievements students have experienced at the centers. To motivate and help students develop comprehensive analytical skills, Lam and his team have created programs that emphasize understanding and long-term retention through a tailored curriculum. This attention to individualized needs has helped Best in Class position itself as the industry’s leading provider of supplemental education to students in elementary, middle, and high school.

“Our dedicated family of franchisees has allowed the Best in Class brand to continue thriving in the communities we serve,” said Lam. “We will continue to uphold our commitment to education and support our students with proven results.”

Best in Class currently has 31 centers open in California, New Jersey, Ohio, Oregon, Washington, Texas, and Nevada. The premier option in supplemental education is currently looking to expand in Texas and California as well as the Tri-State area of Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia.
