I am so happy I enrolled my children at CSN! The admissions process was so easy thanks to the wonderful admissions officers and taking a tour really helped me make my decision. The campus is so beautiful. My kids love their classes and have so much fun every day! I am always so surprised to hear about all of the advanced and interesting things they learn about. They really challenge the students while keeping in mind their individual abilities. I like the small class sizes. I think that is good for the students to have a good teacher-student relationship and also so they have more individual attention if they need help. 5 stars!!! Great job CSN!! I am a happy mom!!

Going to CSN helped me become so prepared for college. I was far ahead of all of my peers and excelled. I made dean's list every semester thanks to CSN! I love going to alumni events too because I get to see my old teachers and friends.
