The school has really improved over the last couple of years. The teachers are great and really care about individual students. Students that have struggled at the district get the attention they need.
It's the typical drop out school. The grade requirements are lax so D and F work at a regular schools are now A and B grades. When you bring up their own writen policies all you get from administration is that what is written is not what they meant. Good luck to any parent trying to better their childs life at this institution.
This is a school for kids who have had problems elsewhere. It is based on a self-motivated, self-taught computer learning model and many of this kids don't have the initiative or the discipline to do well here. The standards for getting credit are very low. In fact, I don't know how the credit can be equivilant to a regular high school credit. My daughter has earned a .5 credit for a class that took her less than a week to complete. There are days that they just watch movies for no apparent reason.
