It really didn't prepare me for college. The work in high school was simple and most of the time the grades weren't given out fairly or seriously as they should've been. The work load in college took me by surprise after graduating high school.
It's an good school if you live around the area
It's a really good community college school , teachers there are very nice and friendly , it's an small school so all the teachers will get around to you if you need help they are there
