I wouldn't change anything about this school! It was a good challenge transitioning here from a regular public high school, and it helped prepare me better for college.

Moving to this school, during my sophomore year, can be described as a breath of fresh air. Being able to get a firsthand experience at what is expected in college , has allowed me to prepare myself for the requirements of a 4-year university. What I admire most about my school is that it gives me the opportunity to enhance crucial skills such as leadership, time-management, communication, and developing a growth-mindset. The teachers and staff have done an outstanding job to ensure that students are succeeding, and are preparing themselves for their future. One change that I would hope to see in my school, are to integrate more traditions that my senior class can participate in. With all the hard work and effort that we put into our studies, it would be enjoyable to let our minds rest by participating in constructive activities.
It is a very good school. The faculty and teachers understand the life of a student. This school gives you many opportunities such as, going to college, joining clubs, participating in community service, abd graduating with honor. This early college high school is exactly what a person who cares about education would want.
