Just like everything in life you get out exactly what you put in. it seems that most of the people that come to Porter and Chester feel as though they are entitled to something. somehow people who can’t read or write, sleep during class, don’t come to class, and then surprisingly think that not only should pass but then also get a job are out of their minds. don’t blame a school for all your pathetic problems. look p

Basically just what everyone else has already said about the school.I went for IT and quit before the third quarter after receiving my net plus.There was absolutely no curriculum to speak of and the hands on learning was absolutely non existent.It was a crime for the instructor to simply come help you out with something or just answer a simple question he was there to babysit more than teach.Basically all the kids did all day were play games and do there own thing and when it was time for certs people went of Test King.com and retook exams over and over until they were ready which was encouraged by Porter and Chester.So basically they wanted you to memorize the answers and didn't care if you actually knew what you were doing or not.I started to see a pattern and while I attended the Chicopee campus things just got worse.There was only one instructor there to help a class full of 30 kids and he could have cared less.There was another guy there for a short period of time which was a great teacher and would take the time to show you stuff after class and was enthusiastic about teaching but they fired him for some unknown reason and nobody every stepped in to replace him.After all is said and done I have heard stories about most of the class that graduated and at this point almost none of them have jobs even the brightest kids in the class that came in with a lot of knowledge.I think I heard of maybe one or two kids at max getting decent jobs but they all had experience in the industry prior to going to Porter and Chester so I'm guessing that is the only reason why.don't make the mistake I did if you are thinking about going here just go to a 4 year college because Porter and Chester will not only not teach you but they will also not lift a finger to help you find a job when you graduate.This school is a utter joke and I'm embarrassed for even staying as long as I did.

Wow. Did i make a huge mistake coming to Porter and Chester. They lured me in and made me feel like i would be attending a school that gave a crap about my education. From day 1 this has been a huge waste of my time. I keep saying I'll give it one more term and see if it gets better but it never has. The teachers are a joke. Our new teacher was hired with no prior teaching experience at all. That's what i want to do is spend 30k to be taught by someone who has never taught before in his life. Every other week they change the “Rules” of the course and make stuff up. I'm really confused how this school has not been investigated yet for bait and switch techniques, Amazing, what a let down. DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT attend this school. Over priced and you will not get what you pay for.

I second the previous comment and I couldn't say it better myself, so i won't.

I wouldn't recommend it unless you want to be surrounded by children re-living their last year of high school. The instructors have a bad habit of discussing personal issues about students and their work habits in front of the class when those student are not in class. Not cool.

The job placement assistance is a joke.

I graduated from the computer program there. Its had to give it a fair review. My feelings about the school are that it is way too over priced. Finding a job in the computer field is not easy when you get out, everyone wants more experience then what you got at the school.

I started out doing a lot of hands on stuff in the school, and then it turned into a typical read your book kinda class.

I did enjoy it, but because of all the bad stuff, especially trying to find a job, I'm not sure that I would recommend it.

I think the school needs to offer better materials and books, and rethink there way of doing things, and really come down in the cost.
