    It is the best school for education. I took AB class from them, and the teacher was trying to convey the information to you in any way possible and explain everything in detail

    The Actual School is good!!!!! The Office Manger Is Very disrespectful and unprofessional!!!!! He told the students they didn’t need a certain class to get on the boat. So when my son chose not to take the class that he stated they didn’t need!!!!!! He refuse to refund me my money and hung up in my face !!!!!
