This is the one school that really believed in me and helped me find my way. It took me a longer to graduate then I hoped but the staff never gave up on me.

I can only say that this school cares more than any other I have ever seen in this city. My son was pushed through 3 different schools before we found Innovation. The school gave him a second chance and helped him to graduate and for that I am so grateful to the teachers and counselors and administrators that worked so hard to help my son get to college. Thank you Innovation!
