Horrible place!!!!! I started with this school and i regret it so much, it was the worst experience of my life!! It is a dirty place. The director is very unprofessional, students come in high and teachers just tell them to spray body spray, and let them work on clients on that condition! It is not safe and i was not going to put up with that!!! They really need to get the owners up there because it is a total disaster!! I do not recommend this school for your career or to get services done.
