Akron Early College High School Reviews

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.
Review Akron Early College High School
I have family members that have graduated from AECHS. Based upon many reviews, Akron Early College is an outstanding school! During the summer, they give your summer work, so you're ready when it's time to start school. Akron Early College gives you possibilit
The extracurricular activities at our school are somewhat limited at times because we share the campus with college students. However, we are able to work with the nearby STEM high school and are able to use their facilities for events at times. We can take part in intramurals there and it is home to the annual all class competition. In other areas, we have yearbook, literary magazine, coding, cultural awareness and student council as well as drama club. Personal favorites tend to vary from person to person but most tend to look forward to and enjoy our class competitions. Everyone is welcome and accepted there as we show our school spirit throughout the classes.
