So many classes to choose from, and if none fit your schedule, ONLINE CLASSES! I have enjoyed college so much here at MPC. I wish high school was like this! I am excited to learn here, and that is something I will forever be thankful for. One important thing is that classes can only be repeated THREE times. After 3 times you would have to go to another college to take the course, which is reasonable to me.
Review Monterey Peninsula College
The counselors are great! Pretty decently sized campus which is very beautiful! Teachers are hit or miss, look up their ratings on ratemyprofessor before enrolling in a class! I wish I knew that my freshman year. Other than that this is a great school. It makes learning enjoyable.
I have found that class sizes are never an issue, even in large classes my professors were able to listen to my needs as an individual. Science classes are tough. I failed both anatomy 1 and 2 my first time. The second time I took it, I had a wonderful experience with my two amazing professors! (Bard & Ambaw) I aced both classes and appreciate the human body so much more thanks to my professors and their classes.
