“If you take the Early Childhood Education classes,Quite BrightEducation
If you take the Early Childhood Education classes, be prepared for NO FLEXIBILITY in the classes offered.The classes for ECE are ONLY offered at night in the Portsmouth campus, which means that if you have a day job, you will be up late until about 11 pm.Then, for some classes,such a s the assessment class, you are expected to do observations of children in school, which is during the day, which conflicts with your job.The hand book given to prospective students does not mention this, and the people trying to get you to sign up for this college know very little and do not tell you this part. They only mention your field studies, which will be at the very end of your education. And about those field studies, you better pay attention to your class schedule because if you don't save some Gen Ed classes for the field studies, you will have to pay out of pocket for them. Another thing that the hand book and staff fail to tell you.Also, Many classes are offered only once in a calendar year.Not to flexible, huh? And if the classes are not very full, they will cancel them last minute.Also, this info is not on their web site either.
Getting in to this school is a joke. Anyone can get in this school. Last night I was in the hall after class and there was some big riot in a psychology class! Students were yelling and crying. It was chaos. I had issues before and went to the dean, dude he didn't do ANYTHING. What is the point? No one cares. I talked to my advisor and she was trying to make things better but ultimately it is the way the school is run. It is depressing there. Classes that I need Never available and the stupid classes I have to take are with crazy people. The teachers look like war victims and have no control over the class. I seriously want my money back. Do yourself a favor and choose another school. I heard that it is owned by Kaplan now and that is why it is so bad. Every time I want to talk to someone I worked with before they are gone because they got fired or they just left. Don't go here.

The Portsmouth campus is run down, poorly maintained. We ladies recently had to wait 2 weeks for the bathroom to be stocked with soap, and they are too cheap to offer Purell. They often run out of toilet paper half way through the night, and complaining is useless. No one cares about any legitimate and tactful complaints. They do not do a good job cleaning. There is no cafetera of lunch room, only one very filthy microwave and some vending machines. There are no closets for your winter coats, and the rooms are jammed with no room for all the students, especially for the Early Child hood education students, who have to take a music and movement class. No one in administration can ever answer simple questions and the school often will drop your classes last minute, causing many students to DELAY GRADUATION. I would have rather gone to a different school...
