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 a huge number of students. This indicator doesn’t take into account 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 picture. 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 am a proud past student of this institution of which I graduated from about 9 years ago. American Beauty School is one of the best in the New York area as it had a well rounded curriculum and staff. My instructors were knowledgeable and thorough which contributed to a great learning experience for me. Miss Stewart and Mr. Ramon were the best! All in all, it’s a good school. Some policies do need some upgrading / tweaking but otherwise no complaints.

This school is you get what you pay for in simple terms. It is your determination that will help you finish and make it to the end. Phase one is amazing and I consider it to be the honeymoon stage... if you don’t take it upon yourself to actually read the chapters you won’t learn everything you need to know. They focus on teaching you material on test generated by the school. With everything there are pros and cons... the best thing about this school is Ms. Que; she is the state board goddess and will have you ready for your practical way before you reach a 1,000 hrs. There attendance policy is absurd... we are adults and I feel there is no consideration. The grace period is 9:15 your train can be delayed or a car accident happened during your commute— when you would have been on time they still deny you entry. In addition, if you miss any hours you have to come a complete week prior in order to make up hours on a day you are not in attendance. Which is two weeks!! If your late they take 15 mins, yet a teacher can walk in late and take you time but it’s okay. I would not recommend this school. I feel the cons outweigh the pros. You will meet some nice people here, but be wary of students stealing and when getting to the shop being in competition because everyone think their better than you.
