This school has went up over and beyond to help me succeed at completing something I've wanted to do for so long which was the basic esthetics program and will be eventually going for my master esthetics in the future. Between extending time needed for school, time needed extra with hands on, the teachers and staff at the school have been nothing but amazing. Not to mention they accept grants which some of the other schools do not. They have been so flexible with my life schedule and things that have been thrown in my life and for those reasons I would highly recommend this school for the same program or any others they offer because from speaking with other students and other programs they have experienced the same family oriented type relationship. I will truly miss them when I'm done.
