"I went for orientation on July 14th 2014 and I was disgusted I will not pay over 17,000 for a school who wants to give you one set of scrubs and you only get that one after you start attendingI was promised things in the beginning and when I approached them about it yesterday now they have to check into it.. well huge red flag!! why do they not have supplies on hand for students for the amount of money that they charge they should have the supplies on why do students have to wait I am NOT going to go to the school and I highly recommend no one at end of school this is absolutely a disgrace the staff look like they rolled out of a pure trailer park so unprofessional and all they're doing is selling themselves might as well be on a corner staff members because I will not be attending your school I could not believe how disgraceful this business is and how they can be allowed to be in this on just absolutely disgusting"

"I went to Harris school in 2007. I went to the Harris school in Wilmington Delaware. This was the worst school. They pretty much accept anyone, welfare moms who don't want to work but have to either work or go to school/training program. The teachers are very rude also with very limited teaching experience. We never got uniforms, or stethoscopes. But we were never reimbursed for this we still owe the same amount of loan. I wish there was a way to have this loan forgiven cause I could have spent $8,000 going to a real school or community college."

"I seriously can't believe I almost went to that school can't believe that they didn't give me copies of none of the papers I signed. Thank god I was smart enough to tell them to cancel me. The dude was basically making me pick what I should study I really wanted to go for medical coding but he told me what he thought I want it. They really make u think they care but all they care about is money. & that's all there is. I seen half of the students were talking nonsense in the classrooms. The teachers weren't even teaching. It's super ghetto there I wouldn't even try to step a foot their."

"This place is the biggest joke of a school ever. Out of the 4 teachers I've had so far 2 were a disgrace. You practically have to teach yourself. If you have Ms Woodard RUN!!!!! She only leaves you confused and dazed. It's obvious she has no clue as to what she is teaching or talking about. And regardless of the number of complaints they get on her they won't get rid of her because there are no other teachers out there who want to deal w Harris because of how disorganized the entire administration is. Save yourself."

"I was so excited about attending Harris and becoming a certified Medical Assistant. The first Mod was good, then it all went down hill. We had a person in the class who had kidnapping charges and other felony's on his/her record, and caused a lot of trouble with the class. Then, the second MOD was a pure nightmare. We did not get the books for our A & P and Medical Terminology classes until the last day of our third week. For most of us it was very difficult to learn, but that was not the biggest problem, the biggest problem was there was so much b@tching about the books, that we did not get anything out of our classes. After, hearing about all of the negative things about the school, (I still tried to keep a positive outlook), I started researching and found that I could attend a community college and receive an associates degree for only $5,000 less than I am paying Harris for a certification. I have meant the most interesting people in while attending Harris and the instructors are great, but they are not trained instructors (and they were not happy and let it be known). So, I would not recommend Harris, just because if you really want to be successful, you need to be able to learn and practice what you are suppose to be learning and not being distracted by all of the negativity."

"I went here expecting a quality education, instead this school is very unorganized and does not prepare you well for the work force. I am left with this huge college loan I have to pay back when I could have gone somewhere cheaper. Not to mention medical assistants do not get paid well. I am very happy with my job that I got but the school did not at all help me find my job. When I needed help with my resume because I had an interview coming up, they did not respond for 3 days, by then I had already had the interview. I could go on and on but I will just say that the school is completely unorganized, the education is not at all challenging, and I would not recommend anybody going here. Go to a community college if you want to be a medical assistant, or better yet, go to a community college with a major that will pay you well when you're done."
