Sure, if you were to walk in and visit our school, you would most likely think we are a weird school, but we are also a family. This place has definitely become my second home. The teachers are extremely helpful and will answer practically any question you might have, so never be afraid to ask a question. As for the other students, they are interesting, to say the least, and many of them have become my closest friends. To conclude, my experience at the Polk County Early College was absolutely amazing! I feel as though I am going to cry a river when I graduate in May, because all I will be able to think about is all of the memories I have made at this place. Therefore, thank you, PCEC for giving me this opportunity. I will never forget you.

Polk County Early College is an amazing place for a student looking to be 100% college ready. While we are not allowed to participate in local high school sports which is a downer most people here would rather be able to get two years of college out of the way by the time they graduate. Personally I miss sports however I think that sacrifice paid off in the end. The faculty and staff is wonderful at the early college. All of our teachers try their hardest to prepare up for everything we will encounter during college applications and every bit of the college process.
It is really a great school with an excellent atmosphere. The school prepares you for college because you are much more independent in the Early College than other high schools. You grow a close relationship with all the teachers that you can't get anywhere else and you can get help one on one with them.
