The First Choice for a Second Chance





New Testing Hours for Students!  

Starting on January 4, 2021, there will be an additional opportunity for students to take posttests in GradPoint during the day.  An MEC employee will be answering emails for testing password requests Monday-Thursday each week from 10am-2pm.  This testing password will only be valid during this time period of each day and will be changed daily.  This password will also be different from the one available from 4pm-9pm each evening Monday-Thursday, meaning contact will still need to be made with your site teachers to test each evening.  There will not be instructional support available during the 10am-2pm window at this time and please reach out to your site teachers for needed support.  Also keep in mind, that if you fail any assessment twice, you will be locked out of working in that course and you will need to have teacher support assistance during regular hours from 4pm-9pm to continue.  We are excited to provide this additional opportunity and hope you will take advantage of the available support.


The email address to request the day time password is:

Takema W. -Always felt she had a purpose at MECHS

Takema was a MECHS graduate from the Hall Site. Takema is now enrolled at Lanier Technical College where she plans to get an Early Childhood Education degree. Takema credits her success to her Mentor and the staff at the Hall Site who helped her every step of the way and never let her give up. Takema said, "Someone was always there to greet me when I walked in the door and I felt welcomed each and every day as if I had a purpose." Takema was able to work a part-time job while she was taking classes at MECHS. She enjoyed the self-paced aspect of Mountain Ed because she could learn at a pace that was comfortable for her needs. Takema also enjoyed the tutoring available at MECHS that helped her as she needed it to never let her fail. 

Kayla G. - MECHS 2019 Valedictorian

Kayla Gray enrolled at MECHS after getting behind in school due to a tragic accident in Costa Rica that left her in a wheelchair for months. Struggling to get caught back up in her coursework, she decided to transfer to MECHS where she could work at her own pace and not get punished for missing some school days.  Kayla quickly accelerated above her peers and began Dual Enrollment at the University of North Georgia. Kayla graduated a semester early and already has enough college credits to be a junior. Kayla plans to get a degree at UNG in Mandarin, and possibly another foreign language, to pursue a career in mission work.
