I wish we found this school sooner. Yes, the curriculum is challenging, but I feel like my son is finally getting feedback and growing academically. Teachers and administration are super responsive.

This school was the answer to my prayers. It was nice to come to a school where from the first minute, the team cared about my student and listened to his school history. He has done so much better here. I really reccomend this school to any parent who wants a team to really care about their teen,

So, i transfered here because of my program at DATC. They gave me way more flexibility with choosing my hours and being able to work in my program. I definitely wouldn't have finished my program by graduation if I stayed in my regular school. i was able to work more hours in my program and finish on time.

I have really liked the attention my student gets. For the first time, I feel like he is actually asking questions and getting answers. I like that I can be able to see what he has been working on and if he has completed the work he was assigned each day.

This program is just incredible. My student took classes at Davis Tech her Junior year. She was going back and forth between her high school and college program. Career Path High's program helps them move faster in their college program and have their high school in the same building. Parents with kids in the DTC should seriously consider transfering them here.

My teachers here really got me. They didn't try to make me in to the perfect cookie cutter student. They let me be me, and helped me in a way that I understood. Even though I have graduated, I still keep in touch with my teachers.

I used to go to a huge high school. I was just a number to them.when I went to CPH my teachers actually cared about me. I could still play sports with my old school. cph helped me to graduate. I don't think I would have been able to without them.

This review is hard for me to write. This school is such an important part of my life and the lives of my teens. I have worried for years that my kids didn't fit in to school and were lonely. Career Path gave my kids the chance to be accepted for who they are. Their teachers really care and were fantastic about communicating with me about any problems or concerns that arose. They also shared with me the positive things about my students. They saw them for who they were/are and loved them. There is nothing more amazing that to sit in their graduation and hear while each student's name is called and their mentor shares their strengths and future plans.

This school helped me find my passion and a future with a great paying job. Even if I don't stick with my program for my whole life, I know that I will be able to pay for school at a university because I will have a high paying job as a welder.

Career Path High gave me control over my high school experience and what I wanted to accomplish in life. It taught me how to manage my time most efficiently. Because of cph I left with a diploma, certification, and half my associates degree. This is an outstanding school with teachers put in the work to help their students succeed. I would recommend career path high to anyone and everyone.

At CPH students get hands-on guidance and support not just from their personal success coach, but from ALL the teachers. At CPH every teacher knows all of the students by name and their individual struggles and talents. If you come to CPH, you will be given all of the tools and encouragement you need to graduate high school and enter the work force with gusto! Come check it out! You'll love it!

My daughter is a very motivated learner who did not like the drama associated with stream line high school. This was the perfect fit for her. The teachers were amazing. They care so much about the students success. She graduated in 2016 and is still in touch with a couple of the teachers. The counselor works really hard with the students to help them apply for scholarships as well. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a more personal learning experience.

Incredible, inspiring teachers who genuinely care about their students success and go above and beyond to help them succeed. This learning model was extremely beneficial and motivating for me. I would strongly recommend this school to anyone, it was better than I could have ever wished for from a school!

Without this amazing program I wouldn't be where I am today, because of the amazing help from staff and my fellow students I received a Highschool diploma and eventually became a Wildland Firefighter. With how many different ways I was able to learn at Career Path High I felt as though I had endless opportunities to succeed. Definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a trade or diploma!!!

career path high taught me a lot education wise and as a person. I highly recommend this high school for anyone who has had trouble in basic schooling and needs anything extra, or for anyone who wants to stray away from traditional schooling. the teachers are all hardworking and willing to make education a wonderful experience for all students.

I love this school and everything it has done for my student. He transferred with poor grades and was behind for graduation. They were able to work with us an our schedule so that he could make up his missing credits. Also, because of their competency model, my student was required to get a C on his assignments before moving on. He went from Ds and Fs to mostly As, Bs, and a few Cs. Also, it really helps that he has a teacher mentor that checks in with him and helps him set goals. I love the transparency of their online system. It allows me to see what he has done for the day and how he is doing. Seriously, more people need to know about this school.

Regular high school was hard for me. I felt lost in a large classrooms and I could never get the help. I was pretty much going to be a drop out. I came to CPH and my life changed. I was able to work with my teachers one on one and finally get help. I haven't gotten math in years, but my teacher took the time to help me understand.

I'm also confused by some of the other reviews which say great things yet rate the school at three stars or under.My child has mental and emotional issues that take a toll on her as she journeys through her teenage years. Career Path High has gone out of their way to support her to help her succeed. They are willing to work as a team with parents. They are not perfect, along with the rest of the world, but I have found if you persist as a parent, they will do anything in their power to help your child. I would highly and unequivocally recommend this school as an alternative to traditional school for grades 9-12.

My son has been a student here for 3 years. This school is amazing and I have nothing but positive things to say. My son was "lost" in traditional school and was on the verge of dropping out. With my son's hard work and the great work of teachers, everything turned around. He now loves school and is participating in his trade program. He will graduate high school with a trade certificate and will be able to find a great job right out of high school. At this point, I will be applying for my daughter to go here when she reaches 9th grade.

I'm a little confused by the other reviews. Students are allowed to work at their own pace and are allowed to work from home the majority of the time; however, if they get two weeks behind, they are put on a plan to catch up and must attend the actual physical school.My daughter has been attending Career Path High for the last two months and has received fantastic support. Her advisor, the teachers and I all work as a team in a respectful, caring manner to help my daughter stay on track. They have done everything in their power to deal with her individual issues, helping her to be successful. Plus, she will leave the school with a trade certificate or license, enabling her to get a decent job after high school or continue on to go to college in her chosen field. I highly recommend this school.

Absolutely amazing. Allowing students to work at their own pace. Of course the students have to have enough self-discipline to be able to manage a school like this, gladly willing to let you off early if you complete all of your assignments quickly and the teachers are very nice. One even walked across the entire room just to meet me, even AFTER I volunteered to move to her. Lovely people, nice environment. Great school. Would recommend to self-diciplined people.
