The curriculum is dumbed down to match studentsBrightComputer Science
The curriculum is dumbed down to match students entering the college from the surrounding area. Academic level of students is well below that of other students in the Phoenix area, where education is more valued. Because of this reason I would suggest another community college such as Scottsdale, Mesa or Glendale. If you want a challenging university level education South Mountain Community College is not the place.

Question
By far one of th worst community collegesNot so bright
By far one of th worst community colleges out there. The teachers are all selfabsorbed jerks and the atmosphere is very toxic among both the teachers and students. Second, they treat every student like a child there no one takes you serious. Third there was a shooting on campus and I along with other students could of been killed. Still to this day there is no security on campus and the campus is located by one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in Pheonix, Arizona. Go to another community college don't go here it's a waist of money and time, and to top it off most of the teachers are not full time instructors. Hope this helps.
