My experience at Rowan Co Early College has been a journey like no other! As a graduating senior of 2017, I'm happy in my decision of coming to this school. The past few years have truly shaped me into a college-prepared person. All of the teachers bond closely with each and every student, making sure that they grow academically and mentally. In regards to change, I believe that enforcing a stricter policy on Early College students could possibly be a good way to start opening their eyes towards life after high-school. Grades and assignments are ruthless, but so is the road that they'll eventually walk!

My experience at RCEC has been amazing, and I know that when I head on to a 4 year college that I will be prepared for whats to come. I love the diversity and the academics are awesome. I have learned so much and have improved in my public speaking and writing skills. Not only does the school have great teachers and staff, but they also offer several clubs for students to join to be apart of the community.
Before I started this school I was barely surviving middle school. My grades werent what I expected/wanted them to be. I came to this school expecting to make a life for myself and to do better in school. The staff at this school represented the very essence of early college. I am now a A-B honor roll student and I am continuing to be a good student and a role model in society. This school is recommended for anyone looking to see their kid academically strive.
