The prepareness for the transition for new students,coming to EARLY COLLEGE HIGH SCHOOL as freshmen is very unsupportive.The parents need to realized that this HIGH SCHOOL / COLLEGE classes will give your child serious stress,they will feel over-whelmed with the classwork from high school plus their college courses. Your child needs to be ready to become an adult if you do decide to go this route. I know life is not easy but if the student does not get the support from the staff at E.C.H.S and T.S.T.C.the transition will be very overwhelming for your child.This is coming from a parent that's giving parents the heads up on this school. The staff will be recruiting to middle schools soon, and they will talk about this school oh, so pretty.But, they will not tell you how hard it will be for your child. The school just wants to meet their quotas. The 2011-2012 school year, their was alot of freshmen that dropped this school along with other higher classmen and went to their normal high school. So parents do not believe what you hear.Do not put your child in an environment that will be stressful and overwhelming at a young age.
