Alief Early College High School is a rigorous and prestigious school in a not so prominent area. This school offers the academic advancement for those students willing to put efforts to succeed academically. Being the top school in the district and the safest school you can't go wrong. The only exception would be for those with athletic pursuits because the school does not offer sports. This is for the students who are ready for academic challenges. College readiness and college success are enforced into the everyday of the students. Plus, we get to walk out with a full associates degree in either arts or sciences when we graduate. Excellent school environment, everyone knows each other, being an only 400 student school. Amazing teachers pushing you forward to succeed not just in school, but preparing you for the real world. A national recognized school with a blue ribbon award this school is no joke. If you ask me, why wouldn't you choose this school?

Coming into the school, I didn't know what to expect. But now as a Senior, I can definitely say that my experience here was amazing. The opportunity to receive an Associates Degree and my High School Diploma at the same time is one of my greatest achievements. Though we don't have any sports or UIL teams, we make our own clubs that will make our experience here much greater. One of my favorite parts about going to this school were the events we have going on all the time. It's like every week or two, something is going on and it keeps the fun in our school going! This year, we were recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School and because of that, Blue Bell Ice Cream was served to every staff and student in our school! All in all, I really enjoyed my time here at the school and I encourage people to come here because it's a deal you can't get anywhere else in Alief.
Alief Early College is the best academic schools in Texas you can go to. you graduate with an associates degree from Houston Community College before getting your high school diploma. However, there is a lack of sports and club activities. Most of the students are too busy studying and are also busy with academic clubs to attend an interest club. This school is not allowed to have sports in regards to Houston Community College. Amazing college readiness programs, lots of diversity, crafty teachers, and many resources are provided. Every student is sitting in "40,000$ chairs." I recommend this school if you want an all paid for an associates degree and if you value education. You must give up sports and hobbies and focus on studying. You are with the best of the best and you must be able to push yourself to the limit.
