    I would rate MPC about a 9 out of 10. I have almost never been disappointed with the quality of the classes and teachers here. For a community college, the level of professionalism without pretentiousness is truly amazing.

    In my opinion, Monterey Peninsula College is a 10 out of 10 as far as community colleges go. MPC has amazing teachers, and the campus is located in a very convenient location. Plus, you save a pretty penny attending a community college for your general education classes rather than attending a university!

    There are very high quality teachers at Monterey Peninsula College because of the area the college is located. The technology and engineering department is progressing quickly by offering all kinds of new electronics, technology, computer, and robotics classes. There is also an amazing Nursing program there and all the general education classes fairly easy to get good teachers.

    On a scale from one to ten I'd give MPC about a 7. It's a great school, but I'm not particularly fond of the budget cuts to the drama program, the current construction going on in the art department and student lounge/cafeteria. Other than that it's a pretty good school.

    Monterey Peninsula College is an excellent school. For the most part, the professors here are amazing and it's a great, cheaper alternative for going off to a four year college.

    Great community college to attend straight out of high school; friendly teachers, peers, and counselors played a huge role in helping someone as indecisive as myself choose a major perfect for my personality and qualities. MPC offers endless support to its students with library, English, and math centers that focus on extra help for students outside of class. I have taken courses at each community college in Monterey County and would rate MPC the best overall.

    A small community college in a nice setting, this school is a walk away from the beach and a place of quiet study. You wont find the hassle of urban community colleges here. With a wide range of degrees and programs, from Ocean Science to Fashion Design, this is a gem in scenic Monterey County.

    Small school and class sizes giving every student an opportunity to succeed. Nice buildings, especially the library, that give students the best resources. Friendly staff that show a genuine interest in their jobs and the success of the students they teach.

    Monterey Peninsula College is a small community college with great teachers. Due to the fact that MPC has no dorm life, there are no activities in campus to do. This creates an environment in MPC to make one focus on his or her studies.
