SERVE Center at University of North Carolina at Greensboro
To increase the number of students graduating from high school prepared for college, North Carolina has established the largest number of Early College High Schools (ECHS) in the United States. Early results from a rigorous, independent study of North Carolina's initiative have shown that these schools have substantial positive impacts on student performance. This brief gives an overview of the ECHS model as implemented in North Carolina, the study's design, and ECHS' impacts on grade 9 students. (Contains 3 figures, 2 tables and 16 footnotes.)
