Clement Early College is one of the highest achieving schools in the Triangle. English I proficiency is at 99 percent and several other EOC courses are in the 90 percentile for proficiency. The staff, students, and parents work together so that every student is a success story. Our graduates in the past two years have earned scholarships to all of the NC system schools, Columbia, Yale, Northwestern, Howard, Hampton, SCAD, and many others. The emphasis is on excellence. A great place to spend the school day!
I can not say enough about JD Early College High School. I have a set of twins who have been in the program since 9th grade and are doing very well. I see structure, love and convern for all of the children in the program. The staff work very hard to make sure that every child in the program is succesful, especially those kids that really want to learn and go on to a higher education. It is a team effort. I love the factt that my children are not mixed up with a lot of side drama and the staff will let you know if you ask if your child is getting off of track. The Principal is wonderful.
ECHS is a model school. We are far from perfect but we encourage our students to be responsible for their education. They have the opportunity to earn up to two years of actual college credit. Since all courses are taught at the honors level, all teachers are expect to provide rigor in their teaching.
JDC-ECHS is a non-traditional high school. There are smaller class sizes, and teachers who really care and extend themselves to ensure student success. Students are immersed into the college atomsphere at the 11th grade. This school challenges students to reach their full potential.
