I would say that Arizona has a limitedBrightPreDent and Dentistry
I would say that Arizona has a limited number of Dental Hygiene programs. Upon Choosing this college I was told there was only one or two online classes. There are infact three, and the actual hands on is Videos for instruments, you are expected to know when going to lab. They lie about process.. in your favor if they like you.. against you if you are selected to bully.If the instructor and director want you out, they will go to unethical means to first suggest you drop and go to a private college. I started to get discrimination starting with Lab, asking if i need big print to see..though i have 20/20 vision. Then filing extra time in DRC for exams, I was then told I should drop and go to Carrington for "more time" because I need it. Thos school is not fair and equal to all They select people to weed out and /or bully. I would never wish the treatment i was given to any one. Thos school is Fear based.. Induced anxiety that you will be dismissed at their choice

So I've held back writing a review forAverageEducation
So I've held back writing a review for a long time. Thought a lot about it and I really feel like what I have seen, experienced, and witnessed needs to be known. I've been both a employee and student at this college at one of their satellite sites. I've met some incredibly wonderful and smart people and I've some really rude, cunning, manipulative, and evil people.

What I saw as a employee was constant drama and harassment(both mentally, physically, and sexually). I've witnessed an office coordinator and a instructional specialist(they know who they are) making out and having sex on college grounds when they were both "out to lunch", leaving part time staff members to run the building. Office coordinators and other academic staff members constantly blame other innocent employees for their problems and make false claims about teachers behind their back. Whenever even the slightest problem would break out the staff members and office coordinators seriously intimidate, bully, and mentally harass other people. I witnessed that so much. Whenever a teacher or staff members speak out about problems at this school they get fired or transferred to another satellite location. One time I was physically grabbed by an office coordinator (thankfully she isn't with Rio Salado College anymore) and told that I needed to "keep my mouth shut and do as she says" and that I "was hers and I needed to obey her rules or I'd be fired".

I'm not surprised at all by all the drama and allegations surrounding the school and what happened last year. You hire shady people and shady things happen. It's always the students and their learning that suffers. I've witnessed staff members, teachers, and employees bully students and make fun of them behind their backs so much. However, I have met a few very good people there, but all in all I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone.

Absolutely useless teachers andQuite BrightComputer Science
Absolutely useless teachers and the material isn't even theirs. They contract out to companies that do all the work for them with no quality control, organization, or though of the impact on their students. NEVER GO HERE!
