Best in Class Education Center, a top-of-the-line education enrichment program that focuses on math and English, is proud to announce its newest center opening in Spring, Texas at 375 Sawdust Rd. The new location will be spearheaded by Best in Class franchisee and education advocate, Yemi Lemma, who plans to host a grand opening event!

The grand opening is scheduled for August 27, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Parents and children can visit Best in Class Education Center for opening festivities. Snacks and drinks will be provided while parents can meet Best in Class staff and take advantage of a free academic assessment, waved registration fees and two free classes! Participants will also have the opportunity to enter a raffle for a chance to win one of three grand prizes, including a Star Wars BB-8 Droid, Osmo Start Kit and Kidi Zoom Smart Watch.

“Texas has provided us ample opportunity for growth, and our centers have seen great success in the communities they serve,” said Hao Lam, Founder and CEO of Best in Class Education Center. “The Houston metro area is the second largest in Texas and we’re very proud to be able to continue growing our brand by offering superior supplemental education to students in the local community.”

Lemma was inspired to become a franchisee with Best in Class Education Center after a franchise consultant introduced her to the brand. Lemma moved her two children from the Dallas area to Houston to help them receive the best possible education. Her desire to help her two children succeed translated into a passion to help other students in the area receive the same high quality of education.

Lemma received strong academic standings from Texas state schools, receiving her Bachelors in Science from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and later earning her MBA from the University of Texas in Dallas. She worked as a registered nurse dietician before becoming a marketing project manager in the pharmaceutical industry. Lemma looks forward to sharing her hunger for learning with the Spring community.

“I’ve always had an interest in owning my own business, but I also wanted the opportunity to work with kids in an educational setting,” said Lemma. “Best in Class has a unique curriculum with unparalleled support from the corporate team, allowing me to pursue both interests without stretching myself too thin. The partnership made sense and I’m eager to get started.”

With the rapid growth the Houston market has seen, Lemma aims to partner with private and public schools locally to aid in understanding the private education enrichment segment.

“One location is a start, but I would really like to expand within the area to offer our services to more students,” said Lemma. “As my kids grow up, I realize how much I want to become a part of the community and aim to open at least two additional locations. Right now, I’m enjoying the time I have with them and am hoping to continue being their role model as a mom, scholar, educator and now an entrepreneur.”

Lam’s vision for Best in Class is to provide the best education possible – and the brand’s expansion in Texas is reflective of its recognizable achievements in the classroom. Tailored curriculum emphasizes cognitive understanding, allowing students to take the information and continue utilizing skills well into the future. This attention to detail has helped Best in Class position itself as the industry’s leading provider of complementary education to elementary, middle and high school students.

The brand continues to grow and develop successfully in both new and existing markets thanks to the recognizable achievements students have experienced at its centers. Best in Class currently has more than 35 centers open in California, Maryland, 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.

Based in Seattle, Best in Class ensures that it can “Give the Gift of a Lifetime,” and is dedicated to providing superior supplemental education to guarantee students’ individual success. The brand’s thoughtful methods, quality instructors and customizable approach have garnered great attention and traction in the educational market. Best in Class’ unique approach begins with CEO Hao Lam’s passion for teaching and his steadfast commitment to programs of the highest quality that produce results. With emphasis on closely monitored progress of well-designed curriculum and materials, students engage in critical thinking and gain skills that are vital for future professional and developmental achievement. The brand is looking for franchisees in 46 states, allowing the gift of education to spread into new markets. To learn more about the leading education franchise, please visit
