I love the staff at Early College High School. Every single one of my teachers are supportive, helpful and genuinely want to see their students succeed. The office staff are also just as willing to help and support the students who attend. The staff create an atmosphere of love and positivity. Something I would like to see be improved is our schools AVID program. All of the students at ECHS are in the AVID program and it has served us well as we have gone on to college. However, I believe that with a few changes our program could be benefiting our students much more than it already is.

Wonderful teachers and dedicated students. The only drawback is the lack of community. As a high school student, I feltblike I missed oyt on many of the experiences a typical student enjoys. Overall, I would recommend this school for driven students.
I love Early College because of the opportunities it provides for students who are not as privileged as others. They definitely benefit you financially once you start taking college courses. And while you're still in high school, they help you a lot with preparing for college. For me personally, I had a great experience.
