HCS Early College High School is by far the best high school out there! There is so mush positivity and support from all the teachers and staff. They generally prepare you for college and even the workforce. For instance, you’ll pick up skills like organization, responsibility, and time management. Overall, if you had the chance to attend HCS Early College High School it would be a privilege. There have been students that graduated from ECHS with their high school diploma and an associates degree as well. Others maybe have done two semesters of their program or have transferred to other colleges. In conclusion, I am honored and beyond blessed to have been a trailblazer!

My experience at HCS Early College High School was the best! I really believe that I got the most out of my high school experience here. The teachers are more than willing to help the students reach their potential. With ECHS I have gained many skills that I will continue to use throughout my college education. I can't think ECHS enough for giving me the tools for success.
This is a great school for students to attend! Not only is it a great environment but the school also is very beneficial for a student’s future. Working on two years of college as well as completing your high school courses is a great combination all in one. You absolutely learn a lot from the staff down to the education throughout the school.
