I graduated from this school and I completely love it. I have a lot of amazing memories. This education brought me to greater levels in life and I cannot thank you enough for this. Congratulations to Mr. Steven Sokohl, you will do wonders for this school. After graduating, I decided to launch my own business called This Is Blythe because Blythe Academy meant so much to me. Thank you for everything. I have a lot of friends asking me to make my website public. Here it goes www.thisisblythe.com good luck to future students. Have a wonderful day!
