E.C. Goodwin was an interesting experience. As a Freshman, administrators will be by your side assisting and help students cope with high school life. As a Sophomore high school drama will exceed more than was expected, but capable. Once reaching Junior year, you will experience pressure like no other in the 4 years of attending the school with SATs and classwork, but you also have an opportunity to enroll in Early College Experience (ECE) provided by UCONN. When Senior year comes along there will be alot of challenges that will need to be faced from keeping your grades high will all the mental strength you have left to the responsibilities from your shop/trade.

Overall the school focuses on one thing and one thing only, the well being of their students grades and selves. The school is a vocational school, that kids spend half the year in academics, the other in the trade of the kids choice. The school was very diverse, and everyone had a club or sport to belong to if they wanted. What they lacked in college readiness they gained in other things, they brought kids together, kids that would usually never mingle are best friends. They allow kids from all over the state to attend the school and thats something really truly amazing.
While attending E.C Goodwin I have learned vital life lessons and stretched my hands-on trade skills more than I could express. Having friends all around you to experience this as well fills me with delight. When I first came to this High School there were a lot of activities going on and I always wondered who kept up with it all. I am now aware of the hard work the upperclassmen dedicate to E.C. I am also proud to say I am now one of those people and do my best, as a leader of this school to give the underclassmen the experience I received. If you're thinking about having a friendly and productive environment, E.C is the school to attend!
