DCTC is a great school! My overall experience with DCTC has been awesome. DCTC is a unique school, since it really stands out and is well known among the community. I know some out of state students that are students here at DCTC.

I would definitely choose this school again because it's located in a nice quiet and calm location south of the metro. Just enjoying and minding your own business is relaxing. It's a different feeling.
I really love the instructor's dedication to giving the education that will be used in the workplace. They are very focused on getting each student a career. One thing I have found poor is the emergency notification system. It has a couple glitches that I believe are getting worked out, but it has caused frustration in the past.
