School Reviews

  • Recommended January 14, 2014 - I am one of the first graduating class of students from 1976 and loved the school. It prepared me for ODU and I went into the medical field for 28+ years. Wish we had more alumni functions. Fantastic school. Lindalyn Thrasher Dentel - Posted by Student/Alumni
