5 College Freshman

Academics: We have very prospective students as well as teachers! One of our directors even directed Star Trek! We have very famous teachers and some music directors have had choirs that were Grammy nominated, so that's very good!

4 College Freshman

Academics: We have very smart students because of the smart teachers! A lot of the students here transfer to a bigger education facility because they've learned a lot and want to continue their education further!

5 College Senior

Academics: It is very relevant. I don't feel that I already know the material like I did in undergraduate.

It is consistently changing as the instructors improve. In previous schools professors

would just read directly out of the book and nothing was gained.

5 College Senior

Academics: It is a very relevant load of work. The professors are really professional. The who feeling is very professional and the

people all have solid work ethics.
