I have been at Surry for 5 years now and I love it. The faculty is always willing to help you so that you understands, there are lots of options for tutoring and the grill food is amazing. The majority of the classes are riguorous but the classes are so small that often times students form study groups. All in all, I have throughly enjoyed my time at Surry!

Surry Early College High School is an amazing school which helps provide students, like myself, who can't afford college a chance to get an associates degree or a trade skill. I chose this school over traditional high school because there is less bullying and a better sense of belonging to the students who attend. The only thing I wish I could change is that we don't have many sports available for us.
Small classes and attentive instructors foster great student-teacher relationships. Structured courses allow a quick, focused pathway to graduating with an associates degree as well as your high school diploma.
