These schools are similar to De Anza College in key aspects like size, setting, and academics.
100% of students
I joined De Anza when I was still in high school and was able to get a lot of help from counselors and other staff throughout my entire time there. Although there are some counselors that aren't incredibly helpful, there is also a large amount who truly care about the students and are very knowledgeable about many different things like the transfer process, applications, and more.
There is a small share of professors that are not very friendly and seem to not care about all students. I don't believe that it is due to De Anza but rather the whole online school transition which allowed for some teachers to be lazy. But after three years at the college, I would definitely say there are more good professors than bad ones.
One thing I really enjoy about De Anza College is the counselors. They are really helpful towards students reaching their future goals and making their dreams possible.
There is nothing I dislike about De Anza College.
My time at De Anza was enjoyable even though Covid-19 did ruin my second year, but teachers adapted fairly well because they were empathetic towards the students and put in efforts to offer help to the students by having flexible office hours on zoom. The counselors are also extremely helpful when figuring out your education plan as well as helping you know what courses to take and what schools to transfer to that befit your goals.
Most people are very focused on getting through the 2 years of school in order to transfer so friendships aren't something you should expect to happen.
De Anza has many options to help students if they look for them, which were very useful to me.
I never got the chance to take in-person classes at De Anza.
