This was my most favorite school I've ever attended, they make learning fun/easy. I've always had a problem staying focused and a hard time on understanding what I'm learning. The one on one between teachers and students helped me tremendously! If it wasn't for this place I don't think I would not have graduated, but I did in 2014!! And everything for me has been so bright and wonderful every since. It's not like a school base surrounding, it's like a home anyway from home, and a big family. So willing to help one another. A very big plus to the school, is working on computers and working at your own pace. They don't give up on you, and won't let you give up on yourself. I would recommend this school to anyone and everyone. Thank you all for your hard work and dedication, your each so special! Class of 2014, Le'Andra!
