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 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 institutions.

moldy dorm hallway walls, multiple water pipe bursts in the canteen and classrooms and they kick out the kids that simply need the most help!!! Fire and Safety tend to be mean, dorm offices ted is the nice guy ever and is always willing to try to help all students no mater the problem to the best of his ability, Angela is the best, though she is strict its in a motherly way she can nice but she also knows when to put her foot down. Leisure's Emily is nice and helpful, Justin is a cool guy interacts with students plays basketball in the gym, although Christina is very short tempered and wasn't very good with teens she tents to shrug things off, Christina is responsible for the canteen but doesn't maintain it the canteen has broken couches, broken arcade machine, a wide rage of board games but most are missing a lot of prices and she is over controlling (for instance kids started pool table torments and she took it over and kids stopped because she made it no longer enjoyable for the them many other kids voiced that she took the fun out of fun she said herself that she didn't know how to play yet she decided to make rules about how students could play when she is on lifeguard shift she was very very strict where the others were not (for example kids were not aloud to cannonball) also be careful what classes you go into some teachers are very rude and mean to students who cant keep up with their chosen course of learning and will eventually get kicked out if grades slip instead of helping them, some classroom counselors are unhelpful in some situation Shela Wright is one of the worst and prefers to kick students out rather than deal with them~Desirae Sanborn

We dropped our daughter off today. It was a warm, comfortable environment. The staff were helpful. The students seemed happy. They have cool extracurricular like sign language and anime club. They also transport students to different churches in the area.

I joined MCTI several years ago. At first, I was in the general skills classes, deciding what I wanted to do. This was a fine experience, one I enjoyed. I did consistently well enough to take any of their vocation's training; I chose IT.Our IT teacher was the worst teacher I have ever had. Without exaggeration, I could have taut that class better than he did, even for the people at a much higher level than I was. He refused to teach us anything. Actually refused, because he wanted us to learn it on Google for ourselves. Which, is fair enough, part of the job is figuring stuff out on your own. But a teacher should also be a resource, especially when students new to this field have absolutely no idea what their doing.His class had no structure. If someone was working at a faster pace than average, he'd thoughtlessly assign them a random task as busywork. To give a frame of reference, if a student's abilities were 25/100, he'd assign something that could be 5/100 to them, or 75/100, making it pointlessly easy, or actually impossible for their grasp of the studies.I genuinely do not believe he had any clue about the subject, to the point that one of my first tests in that class, I was marked down for a correct answer because the gradesheet had a typo. How do I know this? Because it was a fill in the blank of a certain sentence taken directly from the textbook. Even after showing him the line in the textbook, and making him look at the definition on google, he refused to correct the mistake. And to make things even worse, all our tests were done and graded via google docs that students had full access to. So what did I do? I changed the 'incorrect' mark he gave me to a 'correct' one, and raised my score by a point. Lo and behold, it was reflected in my grade.Naturally, you'd be inclined to report it to the staff at this point; Only, the member I was assigned was best friends with this teacher. He got very upset when I complained. To the point he yelled at me. I come from a household with a lot of yelling, so I reflexively yelled back words I distinctly remember today 'I can yell louder than you. I can yell louder than you, so lets not'.I was sent to my room. The next week, I was removed from my courses for 'poor soft skills'. My chance at a higher education was lost because of an incompetent teacher, and a vindictive staff member. Nobody cared, whatsoever either, when I talked to them. It was already decided, and there was absolutely nothing I could do.

Just got community service for diving into the pool with a weight, got kicked out of the pool, wrote up, then had to wipe down every door knob for 2 hours for community service. Few staff are ok but the majority of the staff members are rude. I recommend not going to this school unless you like living in hell

I go to Office Automation and the instructor is one of the best ones I've had. He stimulates a real world working environment so when you get a job of your own after you graduate, you won't be in shock. He leads people in the right direction instead of giving them all the answers because as for my class self learning and is what my field is all about. I have improved dramatically since I started with just my problem solving alone. Lunch and Dinner serves one of my favorite foods, mashed potatoes. The housing has loud halls and quiet halls so it fits your living style and is very vigilant in maintaining order and takes bullying very seriously (sadly most schools turn a blind eye to bullying).
