    Akron Early College has helped me mature in a successful academic way. I am more prepared for the future than other students my age AECHS Is a fantastic school and I recommend it for any student who is dedicated to their school work!

    My grandson goe to AECHS and I think it is the best. He has told me how much he likes it and likes all his teachers. This is his last year and his parents and i feel like he made a good choice to go there. We feel Blessed that his letter was picked for him to attend AECHS. The principal is really great. THe kids a that are lucky enough to go to AECHS are lucky to have the teachers and principal that they have.

    I would like to say that not only students are pushed but parents are also to be involved with the school. The have an excellent PTA and great Parent leaders. The principal and staff seem to work well together.

    Students are pushed to excel. The quality of instruction is excellent. A great opportunity to attend high school on the campus of a major university.
