Early College program at Edwardsburg High School debuts new classroom

Students at Edwardsburg High School aren't just getting a glimpse of a new classroom but a chance at getting ahead in college.

Monday night Edwardsburg High School debuted its new "Early College" classroom.

This is the second year for the program but the first year a high-tech type computer room has been set-up for students.

Many of the students are juniors or seniors that have taken the maximum in high school credits and are now taking college courses on-line.

“Our students said we don't need someone to help us academically,” explains Edwardsburg schools Assistant Superintendent Dr. Myra Munroe. “We need someone to help us with the freedom of an environment to learn that we stay on track, that we learn how to track ourselves and we learn how to be more successful in the independent world.”

Twice as many students are enrolled in the program this year.

Before the new classroom was designed, students gave the superintendent's office feedback on what they wanted it to look like.
