Barstow Community College Reviews
It is a very small community but the teachers are very nice and motivating. I actually took summer classes and they were good reasonable homework. I later moved on to fall then spring. I have joined their theater clubs and honor society and it is a bit hard to get students motivated and join clubs but that is what makes the clubs even more reason to have them. It is to recruit others and get them involved in school. They have great teachers and several programs that help students with books and meal cards. Like EOPS, Calworks, CARE, and the YESS program, they also have a program for incoming high school students named Barstow promise. Promising kids their first year is free. They have something called a food pantry where students can come in and fill up a bag of food like rice cereal peanut butter.
I originally was Chicago, Illinois and I transitioned to this 2 year community College. It was a total environmental change for me. I was used to being amongst a group of people. Barstow Community college is a very quiet campus. There is a seldom amount of people that attend but everyone their is really nice and willing to help students succeed in whatever endeavors they choose. I'm giving this five stars only because of encountering on of the best counselors there Mrs. Rodriguez.
My experience at this college has many ups and few downs. Good faculty in the main office and teachers in the rooms are well taught in their subjects they teach. One thing I do have to say is some of their teachers do not know what it is like to deal with ADD/ADHD/Any other mental issue a student could have. For instance I have ADHD and my teacher for becoming a matter student told me that my ADHD is just an excuse. Sadly enough ADHD is the difference between learning what needs to be learned versus looking dead at the teacher, not hear a word said and thinking about everything under the sun except what's being taught
