In a state that leads the nation in the development of innovative early college high schools that are giving more students a good chance for success, Caldwell Early College High School stands out.
It's a school where the claim "everybody graduates" is tantalizingly close to becoming routine rather than a reach. Only one member of the class of 2012 dropped out, as did just one last year. And for the more than 98 percent of the class that graduated this past spring, college readiness is a given. Four out of every five graduates also earned associate degrees, some more than one.
The school is achieving these kinds of results by setting expectations high and providing caring, well-planned support to ensure that students meet those expectations. A large proportion of students in the school are the first in their families to attend college.
