On the surface, the school is a model of program successes; however, once one digs a little deeper, cracks appear that are more indicative of a school in crisis rather than a model school of achievement. If one's child happens to fall into that upper tier of test takers or lower end of academic goal setting but excels at athletics, then all is well and the Bell Curve is satisfied; however, once a child falls outside this well-prescribed boundary, the child is lucky to receive the time of day let alone the tools necessary to overcome a serious learning disability like ADD/ADHD despite the school's knowledge of the diagnosis. In their words, they were waiting for him to fail before they became involved if the parents didn't specifically request a school intervention. Didn't notice that in that school mission. As a result of the school's purposeful foot-dragging, it took nearly 3 full school years before our child got the help he needed. And this is one of the best the school system has to offer? I shudder to think what the kids at the other end of the spectrum receive.

As the school year kicks into full swing, we examine the many fees and other hidden costs lurking in a “free” public education today.
Being a parent is never easy, but some children are more challenging than others. If you're concerned that your child's behavioral issues might be more than just temporary, consider whether an alternative school might be the next move.
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.
