I decided to choose this school because I have visited many times and I loved the experience. They have good photography and graphic designer classes and that is what I am looking for. I also have a bunch of family down there so I would love to go there and be close to them.


3 things is i love there school band because i love how they sound and every year they do battle of the bands against there rival. There Photography program is really good. There school is really competitive about sports and everything they do and I am that kind of person so I would love to be apart of that.
