“I LOVED going to school here. The small classes were the best. It helped me feel more comfortable going to class and it felt like it was easier to learn. The instructors were also amazing. I felt like I could ask them anything and they would take as much time as I needed to explain things I didn’t get. I am thankful for the degree I got there and I love my career as a medical assistant!!”
