My son is in second grade and loves his teachers. They give a lot of encouragement to the students and so he does well withhis homeworks- does most of them on his own and asks me to check them for him. They have lots of exercises for homework and of course, I also buy some extra books for him to read and work on at home. He gets " Good Communicator" award and others. My son also tells me that they try different musical instruments in school and it builds his love of music more.

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.
