Massbay is a really good school to attend. The teachers are all passionate about their work and try there best to help their students learn to there full abilities. I definitely recommended this school for a great education.
Michelle from Leominster, MA
Some prospect students see MassBay Community College as just another community college, but it is so much more once you attend. The staff and faculty are incredibly helpful and happy to assist you with any issues or concerns you have, as well as the college's long list of certifications and associate's degrees provide students with a path to a successful career and direction in life. If you are fresh out of high school, returning to college, or changing careers, MassBay is the college you want to attend.
