School Reviews

  • Recommended January 19, 2012 - I'm a student there. And it is AMAZING. The teachers are really fun, but hard... the application process is rigorous and selective, which means that the students there are both nice and smart, as opposed to other schools, where they might be less so... and the campus is BEAUTIFUL. - Posted by Student/Alumni
