Anyways, I went to a community college in California to save money and get a solid general education before I decided to pursue a BFA in photography at SFAI. I contemplated transferring to a UC or CSU, but wanted to go to a place where class sizes are smaller than 100 kids. Here, the classes never reach over 16 people. It's amazing. The teachers truly care about you and will help you succeed with any project you have.
The ONLY real downside was the president (who is now leaving!) and the cost of tuition.

In my opinion, this is the best art school in California by a mile. Okayy, maybe it's tied with CalArts, but I'm just bias because I grew up in Valencia.
