At Northwest Early College High School (NWECHS), 100% of the students graduate with a high school diploma and an Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree. Through planning and persistence, NWECHS is able to have all their students prepared to transfer to the major of their choosing at a four-year institution and graduate on time. All core curriculum classes in Math, English, Social Studies, and Science are taught at the PreAP, Advanced Placement (AP), Dual Credit or Dual Enrollment levels. Students receive dual credit through El Paso Community College and dual enrollment through the University of Texas for their core classes and many electives. Students know that being a member of the NWECHS community requires them to put in the hard work required to obtain their AA degree, but they also know that they are supported by a larger community. Teachers collaborate with each other and incorporate different learning protocols that ensure content is learned by every type of learner. Teachers engage in consistent conferencing, calibration, and mutual goal development while sharing across both content areas and grade levels.
