I loved going here as the classes are smaller and the instruction is very one on one. When I took German, my teacher made the class dynamic and engaging. The math department had amazing tutoring and even their online classes had live assistance if needed.

From the time that I've been there, I have already felt the positive energy that radiates off the students and faculty. They do all that they can to make you feel welcome and secure at school, and I couldn't be happier about making this decision!

Due to the location not the teachers aren't very good at teaching because only those who want to live here are the ones who apply.
