My experience at this school was enlightening. I started thinking about my future and what I had to start doing in order to achieve my life goals. The school prepared me for High School but more so, college. The instructors emphasize critical thinking skill. They reward students who are doing great academically and in terms of behavior. As a whole, the school is amazing.
