Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students.

I do not recommend anyone to send their kids here or even go here. Its a sad day when they have a "no bullying" policy, yet my niece was threatened by a girl "for talking about her" when she wasn't. & when the "woman" told her they could take it outside, my niece replied with "if that's what you want to do." & this woman said "let me get out of here before I murder someone." Mind you, this "woman" is 30 years old and also a student there vs my 19 year old niece. Instead of expelling this girl for threatening my nieces life, they blamed my niece and said she was part of the problem because "she did not walk away." Don't send your kids here folks.

I had a Medical Massage by the instructor, Luis, a couple of weeks ago and it was absolutely amazing! One of his student's, Katie, worked on me a couple of days prior and did fantastic!! I went to his class as a subject for the students to learn on someone who actually has a medical need for regular massages (Fibromyalgia). I have had many massages over the years. Some that felt great and some that left me wondering where the therapist went to school because there was no difference in how I felt when I left. The latter was not the case, at all, after leaving from this massage. Not only was Luis wonderful as a massage therapist, but he was a great teacher, as well. Each student went after him and followed his instructions on what to do for me and every one of them did great at following his lead. I told them I'll volunteer for his classes as the "guinea pig" as often as needed! He knew exactly how to treat my condition and for him to teach his techniques to his students is an extremely valuable service that isn't often available in our area. I can't wait to go back!

Overall Rating:

This school is very disorganized and instructors treat students horrible. My sister would come home everyday crying because the instructors were so rude. I even witnessed it myself a while ago when I came in to get a service done..never went back! I do not recommend this school to anyone and on the day of the graduation the owners and instructors didn’t even have a speech put together! The students were walking over each other trying to get to the podium, my sons elementary graduation was more organized than this!

Overall Rating:

As a student of massage, I can say that the school is filled with very CARING instructors and staff, at least to my experience. The students other massage students are positive and nice to be around. One instructor in particular is very knowledgeable and there is a lot to learn. Again i only speak for the massage program. The school is fairly flexible and understanding as long as you show that you care and aren't obnoxious. Like anywhere, it has its quirks.. and can be a little disorganized, but as long as you follow up with things then you will be alright. 4.3 stars
