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.
Review Alief Early College High School
My name is Sandy Perez. I am currently a junior at Alief Early College High School (AECHS). For the past 2 years at AECHS. I can say that it is so far it's going to be my unforgettable high school experience and I wouldn't change anything about it. Unfortunately, there is no sports at this campus like the rest of traditional high schools here at the Alief Independent School District. This school's goal is for each and every student to earn their Associate's degree at Houston Community College as well as their High School Diploma. Teachers and staff are the best people to talk to, you have their support and they are all in. I got to love my AECHS family. Class of 2019!!! GO KNIGHTS!
This is not your typical high school, nor was it a typical high school experience. I missed out on sports, fun electives, a variety of clubs and the high school parties, all essential to a typical "high school experience." With this all being said do I regret going here at times, sure you can say that, but would I rather give up all the wonderful opportunities in this school for a traditonal high school, never. I get 2 years of college done and a chance to graduate with both a high school and associates degree. Why in ny right mind would I give this opportunity up. Although we do not have sports or several clubs, we do occasionally hold sports days and little festivals. The students and staff have a great bond that you find elsewhere.
