The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This indicator doesn’t consider students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare schools.

I have nothing agents the school, what I do have a issue with is one of the teachers they now have working as a instructor is a very dishonest person, his name is( Blake Davis.)I met him a year ago at a salon and commissioned his to make me a hairpiece. I gave him a old one for color sample and money for the new one and the fedex charge. This was April 6th 2017..... he told me it would be done before May 15Th 2017. Well I am still waiting. I have contacted him several times, in the begainig my messages were kind. After my due date And no response I realized it was a loss and he was a flake. I called the last 2 salon’s he worked at and they also had the same experience. One told me he took clients from them, due to that they let him go. The other told me he took money from them and they also let him go. Not sure if he still is a teacher with the American Beauty School bit if he is still working for them (zip up your hand bags0 if he is anywhere close to you. I also am a licensed cosmetologist and trusted him. Be couscous of this so-called professional.

Don't expect your hair to come out the way u expect it to. What do you expect after all it's a beauty school prices are reasonable just because the students get to practice on your hair. So expect the unexpected💇

My girlfriend brought me here for the first time, the 2 ladies in the front were stoic looking and seemed angry. One of them hastily looked at my friend and told her that she could not service her. They kept chsnging their prices for their services, one says $25 and another worker there intercepted and increased the price. My friend asked them why they were giving us bad stares? No smiles, they seemed angry and to be honest with you, i believe they chest clients by making up their own prices;( no apologies, we left! Very unprofessional -/ the 2 ladies in the front need to be reaced with happy, cute passionate young inspiring girls, not those 2 hags that really need imptovement on themselves paired with a holden facelift! And the gay, goldie locks manager who seem like he was in lala land needs a straightener on himself!! They just lost 2 customers and many more to come! My bbf is very disappointed and vowed to never return! Be caregul gals these peeps cheat clients by hicking their rates!😡

I am a recent graduate. The school is cool, I think they need to upgrade a bit but all I can say is if you are serious about your craft/passion you make due. It's all a learning experience to get you to where you want to be. Stay focused and you'll go far. They are helpful, most of the teachers are cool and motivating. I'm glad I finally finished cosmetology school and met a lot of friends along the way.
