The school is excellent, I have not encountered a problem here at all. The teachers are nice, easy to talk to, and knowledgable of their respective subjects. The students can be helpful,if you have the courage to ask them for help. I would definately choose this school again because it provides a great chance of getting a job directly after graduating.

I've had a great time, but I have been here two months, which is hardly enough time to make good judgements....
