School Reviews

  • Recommended October 06, 2012 - This school was the best for me, it gave me a chance to express myself in ways i wouldn''t have been able to at a typical high school. The other students tend to be much more accepting of people who have different opinions, and the school has a positive impact on most students. - Posted by Student/Alumni
