This school has many flaws in the core of the administration; there are many restrictions that are put on the students, that are either not clearly stated, or simply do not make sense. Things such as inability to use vending machines inhibit the student's will to enjoy this school like any other publicly available school.

I am a parent of 2 students whom have or are currently attending Wilmington Early College High School. To simply say that WECHS is a normal high school is just not enough. Wilmington Early College offers each student Two Degrees & opens doors to the future that normal high school just does not. The teachers are there for the students day & night to make sure that they have everything needed to succeed. The support & guidance provided helps each & every student towards the end goal of getting into the college of their dreams with not just a high school diploma but an Associate s Degree as well. I am not just someone randomly speaking; I am someone who s oldest daughter graduated from WECHS s last year with an Associate s Degree thanks to the support of the teachers & is currently at NC State. I am a parent of a daughter currently at WECHS heading in the same direction. If you are a student who wants to learn, succeed, get into college & wants support from a great group of teachers then WECHS is your school. If you are a parent who wants your child to have all the tools available to help them succeed plus a support system for you, then WECHS is the school for your family.

Our son going to Wilmington Early College was like winning the lottery. The principle loves our children, the teachers are excellent, and the classes are small. The students are brilliant and sociable. They take all advanced classes. They graduate with a two year Associates Degree upon completion of the Early College in four or five years. What an excellent program from top to bottom. When I attended the school overview I was thinking, I wish I could go back in time and attend there myself. Pete W.

My child is a 9th grader. She chose the school because she felt that it had a challenging ciriculum (honors classes) but also a family feel. We have not been disappointed. The faculty and staff are great. They have speakers who come in and share about their career choices with the students. This helps the students make good choices when taking their community college courses in their later years at WECHS so they can achieve their career goal.

Wilmington Early College High School allows for an incredible opportunity for our child's education. Within four years, our child will not only graduate high school but simultaneously graduate with an Associates Degree in Science from Cape Fear Community College. Our experience with this school from our principal to the teachers, the initial presentation has been phenomenal. This has been our second year and the volume of work to prepare the students is increasing considerably yet the staff has a great handle on all details of every aspect. Not only are there high school classes but online classes, college classes, summer classes, clubs, pre-testing for college, trips and more. This is a great school that truly care about each and every student and we are very fortunate to be a part of WECHS!

I like this school. It offers students the opportunity to be exposed to college environment while still in High School under the guidance of high school administrators and parents. My child has matured a lot in just the first semester of his freshman year. He has gotten very serious about his education. They not only realize that college demands more individual responsibility, but they learn to protect themselves from potentially dangerous adults.

Wilmington Early College High School is a non-traditional high school. Students can graduate with a high school diploma and an Associate's Degree. Students learn early to advocate for themselves and for what they want. Many students are actively involved in their communities and many of them plan on attending a four year college. The faculty is supportive and encourages students to always strive to do their best.

We could not be more pleased with our child's experience at WECHS! The smaller class sizes allow for personalized attention. The focus is on academics--without the distractions of endless extracurricular activities. Everyone on staff strives to ensure the students' success. The principal is amazing! She's hands-on and involved, approachable and open to new ideas. This school is not for everyone, but if the fit is good for your child, you will not be disappointed.

We moved to Wilmington NC in July,it was a quick move because of job relocating us. We tried to get our son in regular High school but no space available any where than some one told us about Wilmington early college high school and we were lucky enough to get our son here. We have a very good experience and very positive experience here. My son was and is always magnet student. He won the junior scholar award in South Carolina. Just now his 3 months report card came he got straight A,s. His teachers are wonderful and school principle Ms. Moraine is very strict and same time very caring and active person. We wish this school,s success far and beyond.

WECHS offers great opportunities for students seeking a college degree by allowing them to complete at least two full years of college by the time they graduate from high school. Since it's a small school within the larger community college, it is unique in many ways. First off, it's on a college campus so the students are typically respectful of their peers and their teachers. Second, it's personalized: every student is treated as an individual. It's also fast-paced: every high school class is honors level and the goal is for students to complete high school in two years. And finally, it's got great teachers: they care about students, they use cutting edge teaching strategies and technology, and they are passionate about their work. The administration is closely involved in the student's day-to-day lives. There is some lack of organization and inconsistency in communications, but overall it's a wonderful school.

This is an awesome high school giving the students an opportunity to earn a high school diploma, as well as an Associates Degree in a field of their choosing. Since it is attached to a community college, there are several areas of study to choose from. Must apply and be accepted to attend, but well worth the effort.

WECHS provides a unique opportunity for the average student to receive a rigorous education. Students are exposed to a challenging curriculum in a small school setting. What is even better-students are exposure to a college setting while earning college credits, an associate's degree, a license, or a core diploma.

What a terrific school!

This small school (earlier grades before going out to college campus) has very good teachers who care and provide students with every opportunity to succeed!
