The support that you receive in this school is priceless. The counselors are constantly looking out for the well being of their students. Students have the opportunity to graduate with an associates degree even before they actually receive their High School diplomas. The only possible downside for this school is for students who look for great extracurricular activities that are not exactly academic, or for students who are looking to play sports. The school is academically oriented. This is a great school that prepares you for four year institutions while you attend college.

Going to Alief Early College High School was one of the best decisions I have ever made. For starters, this school is allowing me to take college classes at Houston Community College. These classes are dual credit so they're giving me to the opportunity to graduate high school and college with my associates degree at the same time. My graduating class, Class of 2019, has only 98 students and this is another reason why I love this school. It has allowed me to get to know my classmates better and form relationships with most of them. There is a variety of clubs and organizations that anyone can join which can help you gain volunteer hours and experience in the outside world. No school is perfect and this one is no exception. The building we are currently in is relatively small since there aren't many students. The number of students in each class increases every year so space should increase as well. The pros outweigh the cons, which is why I would recommend anyone to go here.
Alief Early College High School is exactly as advertised. What better college experience can you get than registering for classes of your choice, taking classes with a disparity of people, and being given the confidence to grab hold of your future? This school provides students with resources for scholarships, volunteering opportunities, tutoring and even emotional support. There are students from nearly every walk of life, and a kind and loving staff. For the high school teachers at least. College professors are a separate can of worms, but it is all a part of the experience.
