Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Academics Rating

My classes are great. All of my teachers have been very considerate and fair. I have never felt left behind by any of them. All of them have been more than willing to meet with me and help me understand criteria if by chance I don't quite understand something.


Former Student - Last Attended 2005

Academics Rating

The general ed classes are huge and fine if you're okay learning on your own, but there will be very little teacher interaction. Classes for one's major are typically a normal size (20-30) wherein group discussions, teacher interaction, etc. are quite prevalent.
