I like that it is a small school and there is a lot of one on one teaching...a lot of the teachers were there when my husband went through the school. The only concern is wood shop, vo-ag and trade training was taken out of the district and I think we still need to teach a trade to our children to fall back on. Not all students are computer or business oriented.

Increasing birth rates among immigrant families from Asia and Central and South America, combined with lower birth rates among white families, means that for the first time in history, public school students in the United States are majority-minority. This shift in demographics poses difficulties for schools as they work to accommodate children of varying language abilities and socio-economic backgrounds.
Being a parent is never easy, but some children are more challenging than others. If you're concerned that your child's behavioral issues might be more than just temporary, consider whether an alternative school might be the next move.
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.
