I loved this school. Unlike other schools, you really become close with your classmates and everyone feels like family. The teachers are the best I've ever had- I cannot think of one single teacher that I did not like and/or was not good at teaching. Very helpful and friendly staff, excellent enviroment, and a beautiful campus. The classes are awesome- best electives ever!!!
