What are your general comments?

"I had read that this school was very ghetto. I'm glad I came to look for myself. I've lived in South Central L.A. and I can tell you this school is NOT in a ghetto area. It also doesn't look like it's a renovated strip mall... rather, a renovated shopping village... kinda quaint. And the inside is impressive. Like one student told me, hey--you're not going to spend most of your time standing on the outside. You'll be inside and you'll be too busy to care what the outside looks like. All in all, a VERY friendly and cooperative spirit on campus. I think I would be very happy here." Report Response
