Early College High School Named Blue Ribbon School for 2014

 
The U.S. Department of Education recognized the Early College High School at Brookhaven College as one of just 48 high schools  in the nation to earn the designation as a National Blue Ribbon School for 2014. The ECHS was designated an Exemplary High Performing School.

The award honors the hard work of students, educators, families and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging content.

As a school that accommodates many students who are economically disadvantaged and at risk of dropping out of high school, ECHS has proven that a student’s success is not directly tied to their address, race, background or family income. More than 300 students are enrolled in the ECHS a part of the Carrollton-Farmers
Branch Independent School District.

“National Blue Ribbon Schools are models of consistent excellence and a resource for other schools and districts.
We celebrate them for their tireless eort and boundless creativity in reaching and teaching every student,” said Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education.
