I rate Amarillo College extremely high. From the prices of the classes to the number of professors with doctorates the school just cant be beat. The club activities encourage fellowship the friendly atmosphere is conducive to learning.
Chad from Amarillo, TX
Very high level school, don't be deterred because it is a community college or because it is inexpensive! Many of the professors here are Doctorates and have a very impressive CV. Small class size= personal attention= success.
