At Carl Wunsche Sr. High School the Animation pathway is amazing! There are a lot of opportunities to participate in skills which can also help get scholarships. The teachers are very easy to understand and you always have something to do and you have plenty of time to get the work done.
Review Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising - San Francisco
FIDM has no athletic center which is a huge bummer for me, but understandable because most of its students are commuters. The library is a very nice environment with good computers and printers. The faculty is helpful, but sometimes is confusing when they redirect you to someone else to resolve your issue. The wifi doesn't work very well in the classrooms. The teachers are very knowledgable in their fields of study, but aren't excellent in teaching at a rate where the students can retain the information. Many times projects have requirements that I am not capable of. For example, utilizing adobe photoshop and illustrator is very difficult for me and NONE of the staff in the library is knowledgable of those programs.
The students at my school are all very trendy and creative. Most students are commuters and don't really spend time with each other outside of the classroom. We are usually stressed out about our workload and creative requirements for our projects. Most students are friendly, but always focused on their work as it is our number one priority. FIDM is a very ethnically diverse institution, however, most students seem to be quite wealthy. Almost all of the student body is female.
