"I legitimately love this school!"


I had a bit of a rocky start due to having a bit of a crazy working schedule, but after talking to the CG team they managed to help me work out a way that would allow me to still pursue my dreams while dealing with my crazy lifestyle. Now I'm on my way to completing my diploma and chasing my dream job. All of the teachers are wonderfully friendly, fun, hard working and truly want to make sure that you understand the subject material. I've never met a harder working and more dedicated bunch. Thanks for everything guys!
