Welcome to Memorial Early College High School

Hello, MECHS Students & Parents - Students are contributing positively toward maintaining a professional learning environment at MECHS and I am very appreciative of this.  Trust, respect, and responsibility go a long way!  We were able to incorporate College Focus Time where students had access to work space and computers to end the week in an organized and more prepared way.
