  • Reviewed by Former Student on July 31, 2009
  • Rating: 3 (3 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • When I was going there the school was WAY too strict with students looking to be individuals or express them selves. Also some of the teachers had no interest in trying to help a student if he or she was having troubles with the class work. I recall asking for help on a paper once, and being told that if I didn't understand then that was my problem.

  • I believe that this school has become way too strict. The academics are fine... but they must lighten up on the students to get even better results.
