90% of the parents of this school's students are non-English speaking. It is amazing that these parents have taken the time to attempt to rate this fine school. My children attend East Early College and are on track to receive an associate degree in science before they graduate from high school. This school has a very dedicated faculty and staff and they are promoting a college bound culture for everyone who is part of this growing community.

It is unfortunate, and telling, that all but one of these reviews contain errors in spelling and/or grammar. This does not give me confidence in the quality of this school.

I am currently a sophomore here at EECHS and I have to say its been great! True it is very challenging and we are expected to perform at a high level but no one said it would be easy. If you like to challenge yourself then East Early College HS is the one for you. Not everyone offers you an Associate's Degree you know.

As a junior who attends EECHS, I have to say that the school is just what a lot of us needed. It is rigorous and very challenging, but the teachers are comprehensive, nice, and they are willing to help you. It has great programs, more than just academic, and it's the perfect learning environment.
