    Pros

    Beautiful campus. Team amazing.

    Cons

    Trying to sort out the varying skills of students in one classroom is very challenging. Some students have college level skills, and some struggle at the high school level. You have to be very creative to make the class 'work' with grades. Other instructors were burnt out and angry. Pay is egregiously low.
