I have done a lot of research about this school and know almost all of the 50s-2016 and must say, I DO NOT agree with any of the new technology that has taken over this small school over the years. I do not think that the school board is properly selected for dealing with children and/or solving problems. They are also poor choices if you wish to keep confidentiality. These are just my views and did not post this to influence any decisions made. Thank you.

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.
