My experience at Mercedes Early College was awesome. I am really glad that I enrolled into MECA my freshman year, because I am able to get ahead and graduate with my associates and my high school diploma at the same time. Some aspects that I liked about MECA was that the teachers are always very helpful in every way. For example, I needed help with completing my college application so, I asked for help and they gave me advice to complete the application.

Deciding to attend Mercedes Early College was the best decision I've made in my life. The teachers are passionate about their jobs and they care a lot for the students. I became a dual enrollment student my sophomore year and now I'm only 3 classes away from getting my Associates degree. It was the best decision because not only did I save time, I also saved a lot of money. My experience at Mercedes Early College will always be one to remember.
During my last four years at this campus, it has changed tremendously especially it's technological development. Being at this school, allows you to be introduced to a variety of challenges, and it prepares to the college experience that awaits you.
