There are a lot of behavior problems and it is very hard to learn. There is a lot of stress at ECA. There is far to much vulgar language in this school. The principal has changed over the years and it has gone downhill.
Going to ECA for all of my high school years was a great change and alternative from home schooling I was doing for middle school . ECA was a nice environment and most of the staff really care and are willing to help you. The small class sizes allow you to have more one on one help with a teacher if you needed it. However, you do need to put effort into the school work if you expect to get good grades. Since this school is a college prep school, it is important to be serious about your studies. Some people I have known didn't take school seriously and didn't even work half "you know what" so they opted for another school. It is not super difficult to get good grades here ,though, as long as you are willing to pay attention to lectures ,do your homework, and ask for help when you need it.
We love this school, they allow my son to take any class that he's capable of doing, he's not locked into certain classes for certain grades. The teachers are phenomenal and will teach him far beyond high school level.
The dedication of the teachers and administrators. How they empower the kids to learn, what they teach, how they motivate the kids to do well.
It is giving our son a great opportunity in a small structured environment. The teachers and staff really care about the kids and their education!
at echs our children have the right to learn... that and the teachers are all so great and educated.the students get to interact with other students as they talk about subjects that they once may have thought were not as fun! the fact of the matter is that they make our kids want to learn and love to learn... at echs its not a school its more like a growing learning family!
It is different than any other High School in the state. They take each student and make them into their own success.
I appreciate the opportunities the school provides and the personal attention students are given by the teachers and staff. My daughter hated it at first and couldn't appreciate all ECHS had to offer, she now realizes the difference in this school, teachers and students and is thriving and happy. I have to say it has definitely impacted our lives and futures in a very positive way.
It is an amazing school, where students can earn up to 60 credits of college while attending. Thank you ECHS!!!
ECHS has been a wonderful alternative to homeschooling. I've been a homeschool parent for many years and to find a school where my daughter has the opportunities she has here and to earn college credits at the same time is awesome! I also appreciate that my comments and help are welcomed. My daughter is learning about leadership skills, she is learning to own and take responsibility for education, she is encouraged always at ECHS. The staff is great, the students are great. I love this school....you need to come check them out! ECHS staff--you are one of a kind! : )
I love Early College High School because it gives my daughter the opportunity to earn college credit right along with her high school diploma
The teachers are phenomenal and truly care about the students. They also motivate them to work to the best of their potential. Plus up to 60 college credits it a great perk to their education and getting them ready for the real world of college.
The atmosphere in the school is very positive. The students feel that they can get a good education in a safe environment. There is little to no discipline issues. The students enjoy the curriculum and seem to always be upbeat. The staff have an open door policy for any student who needs help and there is always someone available. They gives students the opportunity to earn college credits while getting a high school diploma.
This school is giving my daughter the opportunity to excel in her academics in a small and structured enviroment. I am extremely exited about the college credits she will earn in her later high school years here. Go ECHS!
The teachers at ECHS Have given my sister the second chance she needed. She is focused and doing Great! Thanks ECHS
My school promotes hard work and brings the best out of every student. The school has brought opportunity to all giving everyday kids the chance to succeed in college.
I feel my son is very blessed to be going to this school. We were called in to review his academic achievement two days ago and every one of his teachers showed up. The advice, encouragement, and tough love they provided is rare in schools today. They go above and beyond to help one of our students succeed!
I has the format that actually has my student excited about school again.
