And yes, he worked on Star Wars! Way to go, Brandon!

I had serious academic difficulties in a public middle school. Attending Howard Street honestly changed my life. I gained confidence, invaluable skills, and most importantly the understanding that I was not broken - just uniquely challenged. I went from a “F” student to a present doctoral candidate at one of the top medical schools in the country. Thank you, Howard Street!
