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 index 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 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 educational institutions.

I've been to a few cosmetology schools over the years, and this one was brilliant. The decor of the building flows well, the students and instructors are very welcoming, and they know their trade well. I could easily recommend this place to anyone who's looking for a little pampering for a decent price. Aces in my book.

I was a student at American Hair Academy and it was a great experience! We are taught by our wonderful instructors how to be professional out on the floor. I learned so much in the year that I was there, mostly because of the one on one that each student received from the instructors. I would recommend this school to anyone that is wanting to be a cosmetologist around this area.
