Valle Verde ECHS is an amazing school full of wonderful opportunities for everyone! Being able to graduate with an associates degree, to be presented as a National Blue Ribbon school and being El Paso's #1 top rated school; definitely shows through the students work and dedication to get an education. Being apart of this community has allowed me to shine both through academics and my character as a whole.

I've really enjoyed my time at Valle Verde as it provided me with a high school experience that defied my preconceived ideas of what high school would be like. The campus compared to other high schools is very small as the class size has on average 100 students. This creates a close sense of community and unity among the students and allows more one-on-one time with teachers. The best part of the school is the opportunity they provide for students to attend college courses to earn their associate's degree. This isn't only a good choice financially as the school pays for all textbooks and courses, but it also gives students a taste of college life as they must juggle their high school and college classes. I highly recommend this school if you want to make your future college experience more enjoyable.
Attending Valle Verde Early College High School was the best decision of my life. The only improvement my school needs is to add more clubs, and better advertise them. I never worried about bullies, lazy classmates, or an average education, or the "popularity scale" at my school. Instead, I was receiving not only a top knot high school education but a college experience too! I felt nervous and happy that first day of college; I was fourteen and surrounded by 21+ students, prepared to ace Education 1300. I was finally an eagle soaring among turkeys, and my school gave me those wings.
