My experience at this school has been very good. All the teachers and staff are excellent and really care about their students. There are only a couple clubs at this school because it is fairly small, but it just means that the people in them really do care about what they are doing. I also feel like everything we do here, especially the coursework, is doing a good job of preparing me for college.

Early College Academy's administration, teachers and community are phenomenal. The student's national test and AP scores stand out among the rest!
Early College Academy taught me how to think differently. The teachers are very dedicated to the students since the class sizes are relatively smaller than those of average schools. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Overall, an amazing experience!
