I don't have experience with any of those schools, and I realize that you want first-hand experience, but I can give you my opinion as a recently enrolled culinary student. I think it all depends on the quality and history of the county college. The CIA will provide your daughter with the option of acquiring a top-notch education in culinary arts, but you will pay a lot of money for it. I'm not sure about that particular Art Institute. They generally have good programs, but they are expensive. You will save a lot of money if you send your daughter to the community college.
I am currently enrolled in a culinary program at a community college in Dallas, Tx. It is called El Centro, and it's located in downtown Dallas. The school is known far and wide for its culinary program. It has a great reputation for producing top talent and it is highly respected in the industry. I considered attending the Art Institute, but I decided on a community college because of its history, reputation and outstanding teaching talent. A lot of El Centro graduates have gone on to become executive chefs at critically acclaimed restaurants in the DFW metroplex. Some even go on to own their own bakeries and catering companies. I don't know if Dallas is unique because of it supposedly having more restaurants per capita than any other city in the United States. (I'm not sure if I believe that). We might not have shiniest and newest equipment, but we are proof that a community college can and does produce high-quality chefs who go on to do great things in the culinary world.
Give the community college a chance, but just make sure it's a solid program with a history of good results.
I do have to point out that if there was a CIA in Dallas, then I would have definitely chosen it over anything else. Yikes! It makes my head spin thinking about the potential debt! Good luck!
