Maidu does not offer all the academic programs that regular high schools offer, although they do offer their students the opportunity to spend time at other high schools to catch up. The staff can be amazing but some of them are rather ineffective and seem resigned to doling out work rather than making really sure that the students are succeeding. It is a lonely way to go through high school. The staff really do care, but the lack of equipment for labs, the lack of advanced math make it a somewhat mediocre offering.

I love this school but do not reccomend it for people-people. It gets a bit lonely. But the teachers totally care about you here and it's awsome. You just need to be the motivated type, otherwise you will fall straight behind everyone.

My son love is here! He gets tremendous support from his instructor for core subjects and, because of the independent structure, can pursue his own electives while still earning credit! He has learned how to successfully manage his time and is being prepared to be a successful college student.
