This place is horrible for any type of person to enroll due to lack of knowledge that some of these teachers have and lies they use to lure in students to enroll.

After all completing course the students have a huge bill to pay after slapping a diploma on them stating that they are a graphic designer, business admin, or etc...
The majority of the Graphic Designer students did not know how to upload a site onto the web. And to make things worst, teachers would tell the students to give them a great report on the survey's. And the survey's were then viewed by the staff member making sure that the bad survey's did not get onto the hands of any higher authority.

When I was their, I came to find out that some teachers were involved with students after school hours, either hanging out at DMX, Strip Clubs or house parties, which this school is locatied off of N.W.Highway and Technology.

Their were numerous fights and the cops were not involved. One student was taken out of school because they were concerned of their child's safety.

If you thought high school was bad, this school which is hardly looked upon on, is twice as worst.
Their were many cases of sexual harrassment, theft, drugs, alchohol, and cheating but still no cops involved.

One of the staff members even lured students in by lying to them stating that some colleges do allow ATI career training credit. Then later on that year they came and told me that they didnt.

I had a 4.0 GPA average in the Graphic Design class, their were other's who had the same average and they did not even complete or have done as well as I did. I would give name's but not at the moment.
But I tell you this, the school should pay my loan, and I will not send one dime into that lender due to this.

Please post your experience and other comments about this place.

ATI in oklahoma city, oklahoma is no better. the catalog says that the pharmacy tech students will get 2 extra traing certs. along with their diplomas. not any more but they still advertise this little fact. the lady pharm tech teacher is the worst. she has to run to the computer to find things out. DUUUUHHHHHH. this school is run by a bunch of idots who care only about thier own paychecks and the hell with the students. this school needs to be closed.

I was a Business student. We left one day and the next all of our instructors were gone. We had very good instructors in the beginning, but the idiots they brought in were horrible. This school should be closed, now and in the future. They are totally a rip off.

If any student reads this, do not, and let me repeat do not enroll at ATI. They get your money promise all these things, and once your money is in - they never care again. If you don't like it they will tell you to quit. The instructors don't care - and even if they did - they are told waht to do and mostly are not there anyway. Do not go to this school.

I wished I would have read these comments sooner, and I've seen other things online as well. I was in the Massage Therapy program in Dallas off NW Highway and the teachers had no idea what was going on, the students were clueless and I studied and got the same grades that students who didn't study got. It's a scam, a scam that has me owing about $6,000 and I feel so stupid for signing up for it. It made me so mad, I just kept telling myself "Well maybe it'll get better as we go." but it didn't . I quit half way into the program, and I am so happy I did but so unhappy about the money I owe.

Yes, I too agree...I wish I had read all these postings before hand...well life lesson learned once again...but for sure they are pulling teachers out of no where...I just seen a teacher have a breakout with a student in class b/c she couldn't handle the pressure of me and another student asking her why she basically is not organized and has nothing together. We are being tested over subjects that we haven't either completed or just started and haven't finished. I had a meeting with on of the night supervisors on duty and explained to her I would NEVER advise anyone or reccommend this school to anyone to attend!The teacher has no experience what's so ever and can't even seem to get our grades together. It is horrible!!! This school lacks integrity and honor. The students are some of the most GHETTO people I have ever ran accross in one environment. I pray they all get out of that mantality and become very successful, but it will be a difficult task when morals are not being pushed by this school. I mean for GOD sakes I have heard more profanity used by my instructor than I can believe. I have never been in a more unprofessional educational establishment in my life!!!!!

I am a student of ATI in North Richland Hills, a new campus that has good quality of education until they hired an instructor name SALVADOR FLORES, who turn the education upside down. He don't even deserve to be called an instructor, he don't know how to teach, a person who pretend to know something that in fact had no brain at all.
Attention ATI concern people if you dont fire this person the education level in ATI will deteriorate really fast.

i wish i wouldve found this 2 years ago.i went from jan 07 to july 07 and was dropped even though i was out on medical leave approved by my instructor, i caught a virus while preg and was put on bed rest. my first instructor was good she seemed to know what she was talking about, then we got dr hubner who was run out of his own practice in springtown. i was a 4.0 was asked to be student association president, which meant i was the student services coordinators bitch. the only employees at that school that are good are mrs kimbrell, mrs santiago, mrs k, this is just instructors. do not go there, i was gonna go back till i found out many from my class arent even working as MA's because no one would hire them

I was almost get trick into signing my registration at ATI but luckily I did my research online and thks to all the people here I cancel my registration. Anyway, I did some more research and found out that ALL PRIVATE SCHOOL ARE SCAMS!!!. They are all bunch of lies!, DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT GO TO PRIVATE SCHOOLS!! and I found a bunch of others private institutions: ATI, Westwood, ITT tech, etc.. Why? The bottom line is they all just trying to get you in and hand you a fake diploma and when you go look for a high paying job, the employer will laugh at your face!!
I hate to say this but there is no such thing that you can earn a degree in less than 2 yrs. A certified program degree in less than 2 yrs is true but I advise everybody do earn it as a community colleges NOT private/fake/scam colleges

I too am unhappy with ATI. I went for massage therapy. They worked so hard to get everyone through the course, many students in my class failed their state exam. Its sad but true. Once in internship, on campus, througout the summer the air condition didnt ever work. They sent over the students from the other campus who are supposed to be learning how to fix the A/C unit, and they couldnt even fix it.(says a whole lot)
My instructor was always out on the weekends and often came to work hug over. LOL this place is NOT "success driven" for you!
