The family-like experience along with smaller classes allow for greater focus on individual students and there are plenty of chances to find a club or organization that you can have fun and relate with. This school allows you to be yourself while having a great learning experience. The only aspect of the school that I would object to is our lack of sports outside of intramurals. Through my four years of being a student, I had been taught organizational skills which helped me with time management. With the amount of time that I had free for clubs and entertainment, I could have been in a sport without it being a burden!

Northwest early college high school, is a great school for college preparation. They help prepare students for college by helping them receive a associates degree. It is great because it gives you a huge start because in this school you get all the basics done and it is all paid for by the school. The teachers are great and are always willing to help in any way they can. From letters of recommendations, to helping one figure out the classes they need. One thing the school can really work on is some of the staff, they may not be as readily available as one may need. Overall it is a great school and opens many doors for the future.
