Most students in Carlsbad start school on Wednesday. However, freshmen at the Early College High School have spent the last two weeks in class.
ECHS requires first-year students to attend a two-week program before instruction officially begins.
The school has started its second year.
The program gives students the opportunity to meet each other and their teachers before the year begins.
It also helps close whatever academic gaps exist.
The Current-Argus identifies the school’s geographic information system lab as a new feature for this year.
