Ex-Duval Students Offer Feedback; Accelerated Learning Program Veterans Share Their Experiences


Batteiger, Amber, The Florida Times Union


Byline: Amber Batteiger

Eighteen graduates of Duval County public schools gathered at the Museum of Science & History Friday night to raise awareness of accelerated programs in high schools and give the school district feedback on their experiences.

The forum was comprised of undergraduate and graduate students from an array of universities who had graduated from a local high school accelerated learning program.

The forum was led by School Board Chairwoman Betty Burney.

The students were asked to share their experiences in the accelerated learning programs.

"I learned tonight that there are a lot of options that I can be a part of with AP classes, AICE classes or early college," said Alexis Edmonds, a sophomore at Atlantic Coast High School. "I learned that whatever situation or circumstance I'm in, I need work to the best of my abilities. I'm definitely going to try my hardest to get into one of the programs."

The students on the forum participated in a particular accelerated learning program based on the high school they attended.

The Early College Program blends high school and college courses and allows students to earn a high school diploma and an associate degree at the same time.
