Fully Inclusive Learning

We embrace diversity through integrating students with differing learning needs in our classrooms. The Early College Charter School classes are comprised of 60% general education students and 40% special education students, each working alongside teachers at their own pace.

Individualized Attention

We value the power of small class sizes in increasing student engagement, improving academic performance, and strengthening relationships between students and teachers.
