Early College of Forsyth Reviews

My experience at the Early College of Forsyth has been a unique one. I have had the opportunity to take honors high school classes as well as many community college courses. When I graduate this May, I will graduate with seventy-nine college credits and my Associates' Degree. During my four years, I have been surrounded by other high aspiring students and together we have motivated one another to succeed. My classes have challenged my thoughts and expanded my horizons. The workload has been a lot, but through this I have learned the importance of hard work and am well prepared to begin college next year. The Early College of Forsyth is a small school compared to the average high school and therefore my classes have generally been small. As a result, I have had the amazing opportunities to connect with my professors and ask them questions before, in, and after class to truly learn their material.

My experience at Early College of Forsyth for the past four years of my life has been an amazing opportunity instead of generic highschool. Once I graduate I will receive an Associates' degree and my highschool degree, and not once do I regret it. The dynamics of Early College of Forsyth have always put students first and valued their education. Teachers and Staff have a close relationship with the students which supports major educational growth compared to my previous years of school.
This school contains the most caring, wonderful teachers and students you'll ever meet. The diversity of experience, the attention of the teachers, the willingness of the students. All of these contribute to the wonderful time that I've had at this school.
