I love it!!,
I am not one that loves going to school but having to step foot in this school is amazing. Kinda disappointed I had to take the fall off..But I love the Drafting and Design classes. Hands on learning, so many amazing drawling you get to shape and draw, different methods of learning on computer in 3D drawings. The professor is amazingly talented. He knows his profession!Always helping and His teaching and technique is so easy to follow. Firm but not strictly. No easy class but fun! It’s hard but rewarding. I love it! School is always clean, and everyone is so friendly.
