Sault Ste. Marie Alternative High School is a great place for students to come when they feel disconnected from regular high school. If you're a parent and you don't know why your child is skipping classes- it might be because they do not feel comfortable at a normal school. The alternative school's population isn't made up of gang members and lazy bums! These are young people that need extra attention and positive teachers that are willing to help.
