This was a very rewarding school experience. Aside from countless sleepless nights, the outcome is what kept me going. Five years of high school and dual enrollment in college courses lead me to achieve my Associates of Science and High School Diploma the same year. This school also offers various opportunities to be exposed to different health occupations, and once a Junior or Senior, students have the chance to become a certified Nurse Aide, EMT, or Phlebotomist.

My experience has been very good so far, as there is plenty of success that can be achieved here if you want it. The high school courses that many start out with in Freshman and Sophomore years are very good at preparing students for the college environment that comes with attending WTCC courses later on in the program. While it is much more rigorous that what one would expect at first, it really helps provide a challenge in learning that I personally enjoy.
Wake Early was a small, but diverse school. My favorite thing about it was all the different cultures represented and the overall diversity of the students. I met so many different kinds of people and learned about many cultures. Because it was small, I made lifelong friends that I know will do great things. In addition, the staff is really sweet. It has its cons, as every school does, but it is overall a great school.
