I love my school;I truly love everything about especially the staff from the executive director and all of our instructors. We have a blast I'm currently in pre salon and our instructor is Mrs. Caldwell and she's bomb dot com she's very knowledgeable and creative in the arts of cosmetic 💄 she makes everything a breeze. The floor instructors are just as great, Mrs. Glenn and Mrs. Collins are very much hands on and anyone of them will help you get through. It's impossible to fail with great instructors and direction. Mrs. Brent is always avaliable for whatever we need, she loves to take care of her school and students. I'm loving my journey every step of the way couldn't have asked for any better people. Mrs. Smith in administrations was the first to get me in and going she believed in us that we can do it and that was everything; thanks to you all for what you do; keep up the great works Queens blessings 🙌.
