This school is absolutely amazing! The staff is all very helpful and because the school is so small, they take the time to learn your name. All the teachers are real life designers, architects, or artists in the field and are extremely knowledgeable!

I will not say that I haven't learned anything, but I think having a very strong drive to learn the most I can. I wasn't pushed to my limits like I wanted to be. I am graduating in two semesters and feel like I could have a greater knowledge that what I currently have. All of the photoshop, CAD, Revit classes should be offered towards the beginning of the second year attended so we have time to progress those skills, I understand that we need a foundation but our projects could have been way more advanced and professionally sound if we learned the skills before. The school also might loose its ACIS accreditation, which is different than CIDA but still something to consider.
I love Design Institute of San Diego because, the energy and will to help of all the staff there is ver supporting each semester. You can feel they are willing and try there best to be there for you no matter what is going on on your life.
