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 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 institutions.

Super easy enrollment process, personalized service, friendly and caring talent. This institution was founded as a response to the overwhelming interest in the automotive industry in 1908. It was also the location of the very "first" telephone "conference call".True to the beautiful city of Boston's history and the founders legacy this educational, technical, and innovative icon is home to many "first" experiences both past, present, and sure to come in the future.

Ben Franklin is a really good 2 year technical School because it's in perfect in the setting of South End and it's right in the heart of Boston where you take any kind of transportation to get to this trade school including train, bus, or car. I recommend you coming to this trade school

My experience with event staff was less than a one star,First me and my husband made multiple calls to the event superior Jamie Doerrbecker we didn't receive a response till four days after the voicemail we left and when answered no apology!!Than we set a meeting with the same evil, uneducated, bad- mannered women as soon as we arrived we witness how cruel she was to the janitor a young black male.We were not offered to sit she was just staring and not answering our question/ concerns and was talking on her phone the whole time we were severely mistreated like our money isn't green and were not humans!If you happened to be a minority or a human being this is not the spot to rent you don't need to discriminated against.Towards the end my husband whispered to me let's leave now! We found a cheaper and very well respected staff at a different venue with parking for our sons engagement thank god!

My advice? Go to a school that appreciates student differences, as every student is unique. This school was a huge disappointment, and certainly didn't make concessions for real life situations. Before debating this school, check into graduation and retention rates, I wish we had.
