I graduated from Clara E. Metz Elementary school in 1970 after completing grades 1-6 there, although of course at the time there was no graduation from elementary school recognized. Mr. Bill Blalack was my principal for 6 years, Mr. Mahoney our Janitor, one of the kindest people I ever knew. Notable teachers, who made an inexpressible positive impact on my learning and in my life, and inspired me to continuous learning for the rest of my life include Mrs. Patrick, Mrs. Grant, Mrs. Targee, Mrs. Newman, Mrs. Kramer, Mrs. Minton. Thank you all, and I do hope that today's students at Metz might enjoy the same amazing level of dedication in their teachers and feel as inspired as I had the privilege of being in my elementary school years...

All students deserve to have an equal chance at academic success but not every student learns in the same way. Alternative schools provide students with unique challenges or abilities an opportunity to succeed in a different educational setting.
