Early College of Forsyth is definitely nothing like the traditional high school, however, the environment you're placed in is so eco-friendly that ECF will literally become your second home and the teachers and classmate will become your second family.

I loved the small community which meant close relationships with students and teachers. It also offered more leadership opportunities and ways to get involved. They could get a better counselor who is happier to help students, since the transition to college-level coursework can be intimidating at first.
Early College of Forsyth has been an amazing school. I wouldn't change a thing. No, we did not get that "high school" experience, instead we got the "ECF" experience! The "ECF" experience is beyond amazing.
