This school ruined my high school career. I was in the Practical Nursing Program, and that was a total hoax. They expect you to be able to be a licensed nurse in 5 high school semesters. Its extremely unrealistic and I was only in it for two semesters. I decided that I wanted to try the Cosmetology class the next year. The subjects they covered were interesting, but most of it was the instructors talking about useless things instead of showing us anything related to cosmetology. The teachers at the school act like they are on a pedestal, when they really are not that great.
CEC provides excellent opportunities for students that they would not find otherwise. Either the programs can't sustain at the high schools or they cost too much, but at CEC they can be offered to anybody. Transportation is provided, which is great in these times of escalating gas prices. The teachers are top notch and the administration is responsive.
