    Anyone ever heard of Simon's Rock? It's an early start college affiliated with Bard. I'm a sophomore in high school applying to go next year because I'm sick to death of the public education system, and it's taking away my desire to learn.. I did a search of the board and didn't find anything on it, which kind of surprised me. A lot of people are really against the idea of early college, but I thought it would probably get a lot of support here. Anyway, just anxious waiting to find out if I got in.

    Yeah, if I had to spend any more time in Highschool, I think I'd be goign nuts...lol...but I'm fixin to graduate here soon, and I've enjoyed the 4 years for the most part. :) Got some really great teachers that pointed me in the Left direction, and met a few cool people...but yeah...I know what you're saying. And here's my advice...go for it. I mean, it's not like you couldn't go back to a regular higschool if ya wanted, if you did not like it...but if you don't give it a try, you'll never know. :) Follow your dreams, regardless of what other's say or think. :)
     
  3. I have a friend that went to Simon's Rock. She said she loved it, and couldn't have seen herself staying any longer in the public school system. I considered going there after my sophmore year (i'm a junior now) but I go to a magnet school for performing arts, so my high school isn't as bad only being there for half the day. I totally agree with early education, some people need those two extra years in high school, but for a lot of kids, it's just not for them. Good luck!
    peace <3 :)
