Hard to graduate due to all the rules and requirements but over good school. New renovations, new courses, and new teachers have improved the school so much! Academics can get very hard at times but teachers are very open to after class help/extra work to make sure you pass and succeed at the school. Multiple diplomas are a good idea/transfers are easier from this community college. I would recommend it!

Roxbury Community College(RCC) is a 2-year College located in the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston. Though not necessarily set in the best area, RCC has an amazing staff with very invested educators. Professors take the time to make sure each student understands the course subjects. RCC has an amazing library and student lounge area. Free parking is offered to registered students and staff in any of the three campus parking lots. Located conveniently across from public transit station for those who commute.
I had not been in school for 16 years. I have three kids,and I am a single mother. I had a great year! Teachers were great, and the tutors were so helpful. I loved being a part of this school.
