  • I have 1st hand experienced 4young people at this school. 2 were advixed to leave. 1 becuse he would never pass the GED test, the other because he wouldn't pass the tech part. 1 is going on 5 years there, being kept in the office as a do person for the office staff. Unable to pass the FCATS, but welcome there as long as it takes. Lastly, the last is supposed to be in EMS, but is watchng episodes of scrubs, house, and films like Patch Adams. That one in reading a book , but getting no pratical trainng. While this y0ung person is very nice and friendly, I don't feel very sercure that if I need med. attention, that person would know what to do. Would you?
