I am a current freshman at ECHS and I must say, I love this school! It's nota a lot kids like at HHS or HHSS. You get a lot of support from the teachers and its wonderful. It's helps you get ready for the outside world. Even know its a lot of work and dedication that is a good thing. I am glad to be a student and I am looking forward to graduating! :)

Having just graduated from this school in 2012, I am proud to say that I wouldn't have ever been able to attend a better school. I attended E.C.H.S for my whole high school life, and each year was better than the last. When I entered this school my thoughts about college, setting high standards for myself, and being independent were nowhere near my concerns, but when I arrived here, the atmosphere, the support from these great teachers and staff, and opportunities given to me, made me feel right at home. I honestly couldn't have chosen a better school, I strongly recommended it for any incoming high school students.

Since my son has been attending Early College High School Fall 2011 to current Spring 2012, I believe that most of the teacher support is not good. ECHS has Project Base Learning (PBL) that are suppose to help mentor a student into becoming an independent person and leader of a group, but the truth is that these are ninth graders who haven't really grown up and most don't have the support of their parents which causes a lot of these students to not take the PBL over all purpose seriously. Also there is not enough support from the teachers who assign these projects. Most students don't or their parents, and can't afford access to computers needed by the student outside the school and can't dress approperiately for their presentations and the student is penalized. Some ECHS classes require a student to go onto certain websites to complete assigned homeworks. The school doesn't realize that this process is nothing but havic on a student who doesn't have access to the web or a computer and also for the students who do have access, the enternet for the assigned work on the web site can and will most of the times have problems. The students should stick to only assigned paper work.

This school is very very active. Its peaceful and fun at the same time. Everyone knows everyone since were only aloud 400 students a year as of next year. The principle is a very remarkable women. My son never wanted to get up in the morning when it came to middle school but ECHS has really changed his tone, so much he's ready before 4 in the morning some time. Hats off to this asstounding school.

the students learn in a more serious enviorment compared to other high schools their expectations for learning are much higher, the students come to learn not to goof around this school is great for nerds and prepy nerds like my 15yr old son says.

Having worked at other public high schools and atprivate schools as well- I believe the the ECHS has a great approach to working with students and education. Students recieve the support, motivation, supervision and challenges. Student at this campus will not 'fall through the cracks' or become one of the many who just get by - which is sadly the case at many campuses. As an educator, (all levels through college) I highly recommend students & parents consider this opportunity.
