What Students Are Saying

3.15 Average Rating
I love going to Bates Technical College and am very happy with my choice. The classes are great, they teach me exactly what is going on in the field that I have chosen. The teachers are great and really try to be honest and straight to the point with the students which is exactly what I was looking for.
