    F.I.R.S.T. Institute isn’t actually an in person school but due to COVID-19 we were online for about 2 months and a half. For this being the schools first time online, it was pretty cool. My instructors John and Dave were awesome and made everything fun and educational.
    I currently attend First and I have been here since June of 2018. I was introduced here to a friend and the I have been here ever since. I love how at First it is hands-on and it is Diverse. The teachers are nice. The school is not as expensive as other schools, although I heard the price is going up. They just put a student lounge in and it has the old school video games so thats something I really like about it. People here are so diverse and unique. You never know what your going to get at FIRST.
