Description:
The Las Cruces Early College High School (LC-ECHS) is scheduled to open fall 2007 as the result of a partnership between Las Cruces Public Schools, Dona Ana Community College (DACC), New Mexico State University (NMSU), and other regional partners. Most students will graduate with an two year Associate Degree or very close depending on their individual student plan. This high school will emphasize Entrepreneurship and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), and provide multiple pathways to career options including career and technical careers and strong preparation for four year programs. This will be a new type of school using technology in the learning process including utilization of ISTE NETS, online learning, technology focused student organizations, interaction with industry, and student leadership with technology.
