Former Student - Last Attended 1997

Overall Rating

It was 10 years after I graduated from High School, but I was never made to feel out of place or awkward being a non-traditional student at that time. I attended thru the JTPA program and they made me feel like I was part of their family and offered all the support required and needed in order to juggle everything in my life at that time as a single parent. It was one of the best experiences in my life and one that helped me to forge friendships that are still valuable and dear to me to this day. The instructors were always professional and although I did not participate in any sports activities, they were always made availalble. I would love to consider going back maybe in a couple of years to further my education, it was a wonderful time and one I will always cherish. The time I spent there also gave me something I can take with me no matter where I go in life, a A.A.S. Associate Degree that has helped me get into fields of work that would have never been possible before. Thank you.
