My overall high school experience as a high school student was great! Would not have asked for a different high school experience. The friends, coaches, teacher and unforgettable memories were great overall. Could say that the food needs to be different and the possibility to give the future students more possible resources that will teach them about college classes, registration, scholarship opportunities, loans and the basics to understand how things actually work.

2018 started on my last semester of my sophomore year at BECHS, midterms had past, but we still needed to be prepared for Junior year, when we would all be going to college. So the teachers at BECHS never stopped working to prepare us for success, sometimes we would even have four projects at the same time. It would get hard and stressing, but I'm truly grateful for the work they gave us. The year of 2018 is ending along with my first semester of college at UTRGV and my first semester of junior year at BECHS. I am glad to say that I got A's on my classes and this is all thanks to the dedication the teachers in this school bestow upon us. They make our lives feel a bit difficult the first two years of high school in order to make the our last two years easy. College was surprisingly a breeze thanks to the faculty and staff at BECHS. BECHS is a community of students and teachers that treat each other like family and the principle is amazing. Overall BECHS is a great school!
Brownsville Early College High school is the best choice I have taken. The school gave me chance to make many friends due to the school's faculties. Awesome teachers who dedicate themselves to their students. Brownsville Early college high school allows the student to take university classes in junior year and graduate with an associate's degree. I would probably include some sports into the school, but BISD chool districts don't recognizes them like the other schools.
