  • I attend mt. eden and i think its a ok school. Academically its good as there are various programs to enroll in. although there is alot of violence. the campus guards are of no help because they ignore students smoking in front of the gates. overrall i guess its a good school as long as you dont get in trouble a focus on your education.
