  • Reviewed by Student on July 21, 2009
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • I rate this school a five because it is a very good school with teachers who care to talk to you on the side and try to motivate you for the future.
    I myself am still a current student there and I absolutely love it.
    One of the problems in the school is the lack of diversity amongest it
