Document Number: 10311A Better 9th Grade: Early Results from an Experimental Study of the Early College High School Model - This paper examines the success of North Carolina’s initiative to establish the largest number of Early College High Schools (ECHS) in the United States in order to increase the number of students graduating from high school prepared for college. According to 9th grade results, North Carolina’s early college high schools are creating more positive school environments for students resulting in improved attendance, reduced suspensions, and increased numbers of students on-track for college. These schools are also successfully expanding the initial part of the college preparatory pipeline for students of all backgrounds. (SERVE Center, 2010)...
