    "I am having my best high school years in Early College High School, and despite some students that say Early College High School has no fun at all, I say that is not true because there are a bunch of fun things to do."

    "Hector J. Garcia (formerly Laredo) Early College High School is a great school because it gives you the opportunity to graduate high school with fifty credit hours at Texas A&M International University. Students are involved in dual enrollment. Some university classes can seem challenging, but the teachers at GECHS are always there to support their students succeed in their education. Thanks to the teachers, the students are well prepared. As a matter of fact, all juniors (class of 2017) passed their Social Studies EOC in 2016. Additionally, GECHS has a safe environment. There are not physical encounters among students or students against the staff. Nevertheless, GECHS has very limited options regarding clubs and activities and sports. Overall, parents are always proud to have their children study at GECHS."

    "I love the environment of ECHS, and I specially like that the teachers are always there for any of us. Our classmates will follow us throughout our four years, and the stress is worth it. Maybe we should add more sports or art."

    "People always tend to say that their high school years were the best because of all the spirit they have and all the memories they created. However, my high school is different; it focuses on education and it my future- which is one of the many things i loved about my high school. My high school experience consisted of both pros and cons. I loved my school because it was small but i hated the fact that there was no sports. Sports were important to me in middle school but as soon as I entered high school there wasn't anything energetic to be in. My experience however, was great. I created so many memories and met so many new people. But if there was something that I could change it would be for LISD to make Early College High School located in Laredo, Texas have sports."
