Out of all the colleges I have attended I really like clover park over all of them for so many reasons, one being the staff is really committed to the success of each student. Secondly most of the instructors are either in college themselves or were once students there which really give them and edge and making them able to relate to us as students. Thirdly they have free tutoring centers with current students and instructors which makes its really nice to get that extra help you need but cant afford to get help outside of school.
Review Clover Park Technical College
I love my program. The teachers in this program are amazing. They are so hands on and supportive, but also let us make our own mistakes so that we learn and can take our skills out into the real world. It's fun, and exciting, and I love every second of it. There is not a lot of book work which is a plus. It is probably 90% hands on which is definitely my kind of place. And at the end of the program the teachers help you find places to work which is definitely so helpful. Love it!
There are a lot of classes and programs to choose from that are offered at that school so students have a good variety. It seems like the same instructors stick around and teach the same classes/programs so you know what to expect if you have already had a specific instructor before which is nice. Most of the curriculum format is similar but still varies from instructor to instructor. The class registration process is very easy; I really like how they have it set up so that it is simple and hassle free! The workload is generally pretty heavy in all of the classes, but if you show up to class and take notes it's okay. Sometimes the instructors will let us study in the labs so that you can have the "hands on studying" which is helpful!
