This has been a fantastic school for my son. The smaller school size allows for a more personalized experience, which has been great for my child who can easily "fly under the radar". The online classes are a great opportunity. However, parents need to check their students online progress REGULARLY as thiere is very little parent teacher communication in this format. Otherwise, the teachers are very approachable and set high standards. I highly recommend this school . However, if your child is into sports, this will not be a good fit as they have no athletic sports teams. They do have a Robotics Team and participate in Science Olympiad.

J.P. Knapp offers a personal, more individualized education challenging each student to challenge themselves. By offering on-line (NCVPS & college) courses students who would normally be content to take the minimum requirements are required to take honors and college courses finding out that they are able to meet and often exceed their own perceived capabilities. The opportunity to encourage students who might not otherwise believe in themselves and that they can dream big and make it happen is what makes this school great!

My son comes from a family that very few made it through high school either on his father's or his mother's side. Now, they still will not admit the impact it had on their life or the life of their family now. It is almost everyday that my son has contact with unemployed family members that have everything handed to them while they watch TV under someone else's roof. Many regular high school programs seem to teach that it is great if they can get you through high school. Most of the time I have felt like I was the lone voice telling my son what needed to be done to have the best chances of survival and success. I feel that in my contact with the staff of JP Knapp, they have and will continue to help my son be the best he can be. Of this, I am extremely greatful.

What a feeling you get as a parent, when your child comes home every day so excited about her day at school!! The staff at J.P. Knapp Early College has given my daughter a new take on school. They truly care about the students. They treat them with respect and support them through positive interaction. I would love to see my daughter become successful in life. She now has the chance. We are blessed to be part of this new program. And I pray we have the financial support we need for all are children!

J.P. Knapp Early College High School is the frist of it's kind in our area. It is offering accellerated courses for student's eager to earn a college degree who haven't the family funds to afford it. The students in our school can graduate from our Public school with a two years completed towards their first college degree. This is a new program in our area and could really use the financial support to help afford just some of the supplies they need for their advanced studies.

My son's school is great because he is challenged to think every day ~ not just memorize and regurgitate. The staff is wonderful. They care about the success (academic, emotional & physical) of every child in the school. And, as an extra bonus, when my son graduates he will have 60 hours of college credit ~ transferrable anywhere! Thank you JP Knapp Early College High School for being great!

Jp Knapp has a great staff. Dedicated to each student getting the most out of their high school experience. It offers an incredible opportunity for each student to graduate w/ two yrs. college credit! My daughter is adjusting to high school much quicker than I had hoped and seems very happy in her new school.

This school gives kids an opportunity at a college education that they may not have otherwise. You can see how much they care about their students by the respect they are given and how hard the faculty pushes them to do the work that they are capable of doing.

I love how they push the kids to be more responsible for themselves. The teachers are all wonderful and give the kids room to have some freedom in the work that they are given which I have never seen in another high school. I think it's a great school and environment for my son to prosper in.

The JP Knapp Early College High School is a great school with many challenging opportunities for the children that have high expectations in their education. My son is a founding student and my daughter plans on attending next Fall. They get a head start on a College career and that helps alot of families, including myself as a single mother, to get the education that their children deserve, and to cut down on future college bills. Please VOTE for our school!!!!
