I been in class for about a month for culinary and they have a business woman teaching culinary she never been in a kitchen and don't know how to cook and all she does is complain and tell me I need to learn about computers worst school ever don't waste your time
Unorganized school, I had so many problems with this school it is unreal. I've had so many different teachers since I've been there, so many different staff members. There is always a new president, always new people who don't know what their doing, We as students never know who we can speak to for our problems because no one ever introduced their selves. There are so many teachers who are unprofessional. Its sad. The staff lost so much paper work and don't ever know what's going. I am so happy tomorrow is my LAST day and i will be done with this school. But i did have the best instructor for dialysis Mrs. J.B.she truly was the best and was the reason me and the rest of my class stuck it out.
Started 5/15 at the NYC campus on 14th st. Horrible experience at least. Instructor quit after 2 weeks. Was replaced by 3 instructors rhe next 4. The sub who replaced the remaining 3 mods only yelled and screamed .Demanded we do voluntary work at her low budget catering company during school hours, to help serve food!! Lipstick commercial Equipment you can get at the 99cent store. Not enough ingredients to complete meals. MADE CLASS CLEAN MAJORITY OF TIME(GREASE TRAPS, GARBAGE,Dishes and pots ) 8 students dropped out.Only one made it to externship and they can't measure. Do not waste your time or money. Chef Margot and caterer Kris can care less about you!!
I enrolled in class at the brick campus for surgical technology, I would never recommend anyone to go there. I have never had a teacher/instructor who was so unprofessional, and spiteful. This specific teacher will purposely do what she can to jeopardize your grade. For paying 20,000$ I absolutely do not believe I got the education I payed for. They are lazy, hypocritical, and only care about the paycheck they are getting at the end of the week.
I highly recommend this school to others. They provided great career training and it prepared me for my current job which I love. The staff and faculty are caring and dedicated to seeing students succeed. Their career services staff is top notch and helped me get connected with my employer. A++
This is the worst school on planet earth if you are considering this school don't I did the surgical tech program in 2014 it was horrible they did not provide us with much instruments the teaching was poor the instructor was not knowledgeable about the books at all. I am so upset I waste my time and money going there so please people do not waste your time.
I was in this program in 2014 and I sign up for a good cause being a single mom to better me and my son but it had ups and downs teachers bully me and students all at the same time had to repeat like three classes which I pass and then have one class to repeat again in December so its a hard tech college to go to very competitive you have to be strong. Its no transfrable credits so just to let you know. You do get a exam for free at any site that takes exam to pass this course but you have to make it on your own. And be independent and be mindful you find the job yourself.
This school is absolutely the worst school I have ever attended. Ms. J. is a rude and disrespecting teacher. She should not be able to teach at any school. She does not know how to talk to her students and has had several complaints about how she conducts herself and the school board.. Mr. C. and Mr. M. allow for her to be disrespectful to her students without being disciplined. They should be ashamed of themselves! They loose more then half their students throughout their course. I am waiting for a refund..Keep looking there are better schools to attend that will treat you with the respect you deserve!!
Went to Star on Welsh Rd. In Philadelphia this school was horrible. I had 4 teachers in a 6 month period and honestly none of the students were where they needed to be! We had 2 teachers quit within 2 weeks of each other, we had 1 sub teaching 2 classes one night and then we had our extern coordinator quit because this school was giving her a bad rep. students fight daily and argue with teachers, they never have supplies, MA teachers are terrible don't follow course curriculum, MA course should be hands on from beginning to end along with course work. All their doing is taking advantage of students, proving them with a false hope. What a waste of time and money. Do not attend this phony school. What a ripe off!!!!! By sending the students out unprepared, hospitals dropped our school while I was attending SMH and they expected us to stay yea right!!!
Although I do not recommend technical schools, I would like to thank this school for saving my a** when my other school closed. They picked me up where I left off and they DID NOT charge me a penny more. Thank you for giving me what I paid for! The good thing is the school does come through with what they offer,but the bad thing is you just have to constantly harass them for it.
