Johana from Los Angeles, CA
this school is one of the best according to my experience. this school provides a good education, a safe atmosphere, a relaxing place to study at being that your surrounded by nature trees all around. this school has nice, and friendly staff members perhaps like other schools every now and then a few rude ones but most are willing to help when needed, when questions are asked they try to help one.
