Positive experience at the Academy of Art university.

Instructor (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA (US)

ProsThe flexibility of schedule and instructor teaching style. The Academy provides many resources for instructors and students, in regards to lab facility, online resources and knowledgeable staff.

ConsNothing in particular stands out

Advice to Senior ManagementFewer students per class would give students and instructors a better experience. Class sizes tend toward 20 - 25 students. With this number, it can be difficult to give more than 3-7 minutes of critique/ feedback per student assignment, without cutting into course instruction time.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
