School Reviews

I went to this school MANY years ago. It is a great program that can help already at-risk teen stay in school through some very difficult times. They do not slack on the academics and still expect the very best from their students, while helping them deal with stresses that most teens do not have to deal with (thankfully!). The facilities are clean, interesting and even fun. There is a daycare on site, as well as medical care for those expecting and those who wish to prevent it in the future.
