As More Colleges Partner with SCS, Lines Between Lower, Higher Education Blur in Memphis
On the Union Avenue campus of Southwest Tennessee Community College, a yellow school bus pulls up to the outside of Building E around 2:30 p.m. every school day.
Inside the building, 90 ninth-grade students wait in the hallway for their dismissal cue, then leave through the doors marked “Southwest Early College High School.”
The school is new this year, a charter partnership between Southwest Tennessee Community College and Artesian Schools. The charter is under Shelby County Schools.
