Alief Early College High School Reviews

Going to AECHS was truly a developing experience. Though, I didn't have what's considered to be the typical "High School experience", the sacrifice was worth the reward. Seeing that the idea of "early colleges" was new to Alief, my class was the last bunch from the experimental group of students. We were allowed the opportunity to take our core classes and gain our associate's degree. Thus saving anywhere from $20k-$40k for college and a HUGE headache with financial aid. I did wish we had a broader subject choice to choose from instead of only science and art, but I knew it'd take some time for them to be able to broaden the choices for the early college students. Wonderful area to cultivate needed skills to handle the college workload. Plus the resources have increased rapidly since I've graduated. You'll really feel like a family down there because everyone knows each other (student body is roughly 400+).

The attributes that I enjoy about my school, Alief Early College High School is the opportunities that it sets up for you. To elaborate, Alief Early College High School, in partnership with HCC, allows you to take HCC classes in order to graduate high school with an Associates degree. However, one thing that I wish would improve about this school would be the variety when it comes to choosing a college to attend. As of now, Alief Early College High School allows the Associates degree, along with the credits accumulated, to transfer to only a selective amount of colleges. I wish to have a wider selection when wanting to choose my college.
I feel very much prepared for college and think this is the best school for students who want to get advanced in their studies before going to university. This also gives students a sense of responsibility and independence that better prepares us maturity wise. I am proud of attending this school all four years and would recommend it to anyone who is serious about furthering their education and want an amazing future. The teachers are great here and I have a deep appreciation for everything they do and for their passion in teaching considering that I want to be a teacher too. The food is better than normal school and you even get college credits after graduating! This is an amazing school that helps you grow in many ways.
