Akron Early College High School has been a great experience! I got the chance to take college during my high school years. I got a feel of the campus life and got closer to my goals. At times the academics may be difficult but there are always teachers and my professors willing to help at anytime. I have never felt more supported. The students are amazing as well. Yes we have our differences, but everyone is focused on their goals and do not mind helping others achieve their own goals. We have a history of seniors who help the underclassmen and I have been lucky to be among those seniors. I am very happy that I attend this school and would definitely recommend it to other students in Akron.

I absolutely loved this school! The teachers are always supportive and willing to help you whenever you need it. There's a great sense of community within the classes, and by the time you graduate, you feel like you're family. It may have been stressful, but it was definitely worth it!
Akron Early College is such an amazing opportunity and definitely one of the best high schools to attend. From the very helpful teachers and office staff who would go out of their way for the students, to the amazing opportunities that they provide their students with, it is all around an immaculate high school and definitely a one of a kind high school with amazing school pride coming from not only the staff, but the students as well.
