NRMPS Early College High School Reviews

I am Sasha Bunch, a super senior at Nash Rocky Mount Early College High School (ECHS). It has been an honor to have had the opportunity to advance my education and future career with the support of high school faculty, and college professors. ECHS provided the necessary tools and resources to encourage students like me to face challenges head on and rise to the occasion. It is strongly agreed that these things were well needed when taking on high school and college classes simultaneously, along with balancing an outside life. One thing that could use a little attention would be the attendance rate at ECHS. Consistent awareness of this school to various communities and middle schools allows for more opportunities to young students to take advantage of what ECHS has to offer. Attending Early College has not only made the process of transitioning to a four-year university much easier and well affordable, but has allowed me to cultivate my identity as an individual to succeed in life.

My school has excellent teachers that are committed to their students success rather than earning a paycheck. The AVID based classes have helped me learn to be prepared and played a large roll in my success. There are many opportunities that are available due to being on Nash Community College's campus, such as Global Scholars Program with whom some Early College students are planning to travel with in May. The Early College program has been an exceptional experience and I feel one hundred percent prepared for postsecondary education.
Early college is a great opportunity for students to receive an associates degree at no cost. The resources/connections provide us with a great foundation and experience. However after many years there (class'18), I've noticed the lack of diversity, school spirit, agreement among management/staff, and overall improvement. It's evident as half the teachers since 9th grade have gradually quit by the time I graduated due to "mistreatment and internal staff conflicts".

Two improvement suggestions:
1) Get rid of the lottery system for incoming freshman (revert back to pure interviews) because the parent pressured students entering, who don't want to be here, take up spots for those who want to be here but weren't selected during the lottery process.
2) Increase the student population beyond only 60, to allow more diversity and increased school spirit as seen in larger schools.

Overall this school has alot of potential to be successful but not much is being done to solve its own problems.
