Carrington is a nice school. The staff is really friendly and the teachers really want to see you succeed; this includes tutoring one on one/in groups, breaking everything down so you can understand it very simple and plain, and really going over the material to make sure the students really grasp the subject. The campus is big and the parking isn't the best all the time, but it's definitely not a deal breaker!

The school is expensive but it is worth the price! I am in the Veterinary technician program and all of the teachers are extremely knowledgeable and fair for the most part in there grading. I am fully confident that I will be prepared to take my license test by the time I am done.
The counselors and enrollment reps are wonderful at Carrington! They take the time to really help you understand what you're getting into and how to finance your program.
