    As an alumni, I was well prepared for college academically. I was a music student and didn't feel as well prepared in that area, but because of the dedication of my teachers they took extra time to make sure I was ready for the challenges in that area ahead in college despite the lack of course offerings in the music area. It's a great school with a great faculty.
