Posted April 27, 2004

I am a former student who is now attending Brown College. When I went to MN Transitions it was still a little rough around the edges, having been in opperation for only about four years. However, the teachers were knowledgeable, friendly, and patient; the school was clean and safe; and the classes were small and one-on-one. The only problem I ever had was with the school-to-work emphasis. It felt like they wrer pushing students into jobs rather than further education (i.e. college, post-secondary school).
