Environmental Charter High School is an amazing place to be. There is so much support and kindness at this school. All of the teachers, wether you are their student or not, are friendly with positive smiles and are very easy to contact and communicate with. The office staff is very fun, efficient, and understanding. Last, the clubs are very diverse and encouraging! Cultural clubs especially, teach a ton about different ethnicities, regions, cultures, languages, and religions that make one more knowledgeable. Last but not least, the schools environment is very comforting. From the fresh fruits and veggies all over campus, to the friendly rabbits and chickens that roam within the students, ECHS proves to contain a unique environment that any regular high school would fail to fulfill.

My experience at Environmental Charter High School will be on to cherish forever. The amount of memories, tears, and laughs experienced at this school are unlike I've ever experienced anywhere else. Before attending, I never had any teachers that truly cared about you. My other teachers would just treat me like a stranger. Once I attended ECHS, that all changed. The teachers at ECHS genuinely take time out of their day to check in on you. The amount of diversity on campus is remarkable, and being able to learn about other cultures besides mine was special to me. ECHS offers tons of support, activities, and clubs for their students. ECHS is more than just a high school, it's a place where you can make a new family. Regardless of what grade you're in, everyone treats each other with respect. The people you meet here really leave a print on your heart. ECHS' academics and college readiness programs benefit the students here drastically. ECHS is a second home for students and teachers.
At this school, I really enjoyed the environment, it is very welcoming and have made me feel comfortable with myself and with others. It is filled with tons of administrators that push you to be an above average student and to not give up. The best part about this school is the helping hand they offer you when doing college applications, applying for scholarships, registering for the SAT/ACT, etc. It is a small built-in campus with tons of fruits and vegetables for students to grab before going to class and or during lunch. The only thing I would change about my experience there is putting myself out there more, such as joining more clubs, making more friends, and letting my voice heard out more.
