Lee Early College is a great school for students who are interested in getting ahead in their academic career. The teachers are always there to help you with any issue you have, ranging from work to personal. The teachers are always pushing you to be the best you can be, with the small class sizes there is more room for one-on-one experiences. We do not have sports but we are all too focused on taking college classes to think about sports.
Review Lee Early College
I liked that you can finish your high school in a matter of a couple semesters. Also, how you can take all your core classes needed for graduation in 2 years or less. While in a regular high school you need to wait most of the time until your 4 years in order to complete all your core classes. It's a very diverse school because there are many types of people going there such as people of different race and ethnicity. One thing I would like to change is the administration. I feel like the the principal and the people administrating the school could do a better job in order for students to stay on track of their work. Also so the school can run smoothly without problems. I encountered a number of problems while attending here such as not getting the schedule of classes or classes I needed to graduate.
I found some of the best friends I could ever find in my life at LEC. The teachers and principals were not all that great, except for the pick few teachers that I will always keep in contact with. I am grateful for the opportunity to go to an early college, as it had helped me a lot financially with school.
