I cannot find enough wonderful things to say about JD Clement Early College! Both of my children attended this school. Like so most other students, they had enough credits to enter into college with junior status, saving parents in the school lots of money on tuition. This year, the seniors at the school received over 9 million dollars worth of scholarship offers and my children both have full-ride scholarships tho their dream college. The school has high expectations for student success and lots of academic support. The students leave the school confident, content, and prepared for college. My son just completed his freshman year with a 4.0. Principal Woods-Weeks who was Principal of the Year two years ago, is an awesome principal and JDC Early College is a model for successful education. I only wish other schools would educate in this way.

J D Clement Early College High School is a successful dual enrollment program. As a student, I am able to complete all of my high school courses at an accelerated rate. This allows the opportunity for each and every student to get college credits in order to transfer to other colleges or remain at the university it is based in. The program does, however, have some strict rules and restrictions. When the rules and standards are met and kept, this school allows for each and every one of its students to prosper and have an early start in his and/or her careers. Overall, this program has saved my family and I lots of money and I am proud to say that I have been an EAGLE!
As a senior of Early College High School, my experience these past four years have been awesome. The classmates, teachers, and the staff is very helpful. They just want what is best for their students. Anything that we needed help with, they will go out of their way to help us find a solution to our problem. Of course there was the mountains of homework we have to do and had limited free time to ourselves, but that is because they want us to be college ready. Colleges love to make their students suffer with mountains of homework anyway, so getting it now is building a high tolerance of taking on so much homework. Also, if you use your time wisely, you will be able to survive the mountains of homework they dish out. I mean that is the only reason why I survived this far in high school and I is going to be awesome when I graduate too!
