I love Wilmington Early College High School! They have built me up into a hard working, second year college student at the age of 16! The teachers are very supportive and helpful. The staff truly cares about your well-being and helping you learn. I would recommend my high school everybody. This school gives you the opportunity to complete an associates degree of your choice during your high school years so that when you graduate in four or five years you have a two-year college degree.

I love my school. We have the typical ups and downs of a school within a school, but the faculty are all highly attuned to the students, everyone knows everyone and feels accepted, and the opportunities for advancing one's education and completing an associate's degree while still in high school are tough to beat! I recommend this school to anyone looking for a unique opportunity, a different setting than the traditional high school, and a chance to be a big fish in a small pond.
This school has been a good experience for me because of the fast paced environment in the first two years, getting each student prepared for college life. Going into the college classes gets students prepared for everything else in the future. It all works well together so we are fully prepared to create and achieve goals for our future endeavors.
