Reviews of San Antonio Vocational Schools
Reviews from other students are one of the best ways to determine the quality of a school. To help you choose between San Antonio vocational schools, we have put together a list of the good, the bad, and the ugly from some of the most popular trade schools in the area.
1. Kaplan College
Good On-site clinic gives us practice with real patients in real situations. Neutral The school was not anything special. I would [have] rather spent my money and time at a real community college. Bad I haven’t fully graduated with my program, but the career services state they will help me find a job no matter what. Seems nice, but on the other hand, career services people are at times very rude and don’t hold out on the appointments made with their students. … Every time I go into the office, they are all gone or out or just [too] “busy” to help you and want to just make an appointment with you.
2. The Art Institute of San Antonio
Good It was complicated to apply, but overall it was worth it. Neutral The classes were average. Not too crowded and had the right teachers to help. Bad I’m disappointed [in] some of the professors, how they can lack passion for some of the arts they’re teaching us.
3. Milan Institute of Cosmetology
Good I love my classes and teachers — they are awesome and help so much. I get a lot of homework, but it really does help me. Neutral There are only 4 computers available for student use, but that’s fine, as we don’t need to use them for much of anything. Bad Financial aid office not helpful [in] steering me to grants or scholarships.
Good My experience so far has been great. I love this school! Neutral [It’s] getting better from what I have been told. I can see the change in the program. Bad Overall, I think they charge too much, but I kind of need something fast and of course that always [costs] you money.
5. Brown Mackie College
Good I just got accepted in this school and just planning everything out they really seem to care and were very flexible with my [schedule]. It helps to know they understand. Neutral The school does not have a sports team of any kind, but we have a mascot, the lion. The student center is the lunch break area, nothing special there. Library is nice, lots of resources available and CPUs to use as well. Not really a campus, so there is no campus life to talk about. It’s in a building shared by a bank and some corporate offices. Bad In the past year and a half, there [have] been way too many instructors coming in and out of Brown Mackie. The instructors that are hired are not educated properly and some of them do not have the people skills they need to work in a classroom. Opinions from other students should be just one consideration when deciding between San Antonio vocational schools. During your research, find out about the programs offered, financial aid options, certifications, and job support after graduation.
