Duplin Early College, has been an amazing experience which has brought many advantages. One of the reasons I applied to the school was because of the program they offered which was 2 years of community college how many blessing is that! Just the enthusiasm of reciecing a letter back that April of 2011 was so thrilling and life changing at the same time, I knew this was the school I imagined and hoped for! I did not start off well but what made me happy was the support system I can honestly say that the teachers and every single principal that has came to the school has absolutely helped me in every way possible, giving me rides after school just to attend tutoring sessions, giving me the help I need, giving me advice about my futer but most importantly they belived in me even if I missed days of school and failing a lot of classes, they never lost hope in me, I will never forget that it impacted my life for the better and I want to pay it forward one day. Another of the great things I have absolutely favored was the students, the group I came with as a freshman were in other terms like family. It is an advantage to be accepted to a high school with such small students, that helps a lot in getting to know one another. I loved the fact that I grew at DECHS from right in wrong I can honestly say lessons have been tought i've learned to deal with many intelligent young people as well as fake people that claimed to be friends, I matured in different ways I still have a lot more to learn but I can honestly say I have learned. The friends that have stuck around have been another blessing because here I have met people who actually cared about me as in giving me advice, pushing me to do better many of my friends were on the top ten and are now attending many universities I admire the fact that I got to meet some of these amazing people I call friends! What better way to expiernce high school! And to hang around the right people and have the positive atmosphere.
