I'm a 17 year old senior in High school. I work at a Hotel restaurant as a cook. I want to go to the Art institution of Philadelphia ,but I dont want to have lots of loans so is it worth it to go to culinary school. I have been working as a cook since may and I want to gain as much experience as I can because I know experience is more important than a degree,but I dont know if I should go to a culinary school or a County college. I want to some day move up and become a sous chef then executive chef. I also take Culinary arts honors in high school and its not helping me at all and I'm not learning what I expected its just like a home Ec Class.
