“Five Stars!”

This is a really great school for anyone looking to go to school and be able to work at the same time. they really look out for the best interest of the students. I’d recommend this school to anyone interested in barbering.

Above the rest academy is phenomenal!!!  They look out for you all the way through your licensing. Don’t go anywhere else.

This academy is awesome. It’s nice to go to a barber school where you can work at a shop as you’re learning instead of a barber school where you have to put in 40 hours a week and end up with $0 at the end of the week.
