"Why would I recommend to the Sam Villa Partnership School? The professional ergonomic tools, access to amazing education from the team and most importantly, Sam himself. He has created a team that treats each partnership school as family. After 2 years of being a partnership school they have repeatedly exceeded my expectations and have added tremendous value to our organization."

So we were beyond thrilled when we had the opportunity to offer our students the best tools available in our industry. Who better than Sam Villa to create quality ergonomically correct tools that the students can use while they are on our campus and throughout their career. Partnering with Sam Villa and his team of professionals has been one of the best decisions we have made to support our students."
