I attended Manual Arts from 2003 till 2007. I did end up going to a college, a UC, but once I got to college and saw my competition, I knew right away that I was in trouble. There are some good programs within the school, like Academy of Finance, Magnet Program, AP courses, and a couple more programs. ...  Read more
