This the absolute worst of the charter public schools in the high desert. During state testing, the administer of the test told my son that he would never get a job as an adult if he did not score well on said test. I believe this is commonly known as fabrication. In addition to the intimidation element, we were actually stalked by two members of the staff who came to my home unannounced one morning. The final straw was once it was known that my son would not be returning for the following school year, his teacher very openly would scowl at him on a daily basis. I just received his transcripts and evidently he now suddenly short 35-40 credits when we had been receiving hand written notes from his teacher last year repeatedly stating that "all is fine". Apparently "all" was not fine.

Terrible terrible Charter School, my son attended Options For Youth from 7th grade to 11th grade, his records were so messed up, when I checked him in to public school they said he was behind in his grades, he went to school everyday and took his exams on time. I had to check him out and place him in another charter school which helped him get back on track, the teacher was rude and the principal kept telling me they would look into it and call me back, she never did. Please do not put your child in Options you will regret it, it takes them along time to move your child to the next level and they never do progress reports so you do not know how your child is doing unless you request. Terrible School.

I always had a problem with bullies in school. I never felt safe. But in option for youth . I felt like i was among differant people. like i had no worries of being judged there. But other than that i loved learning from my teacher. The one on one attention helped me out so much . I have much better grades in options than i did regular public high school. I do believe that public schools can learn something from options.

I love our students! It's so wonderful, as a teacher, to get to know the kids on a personal level and to interact with them one-on-one.

I love OFY because each student gets to meet one-on-one with their teacher. The teachers all care very much about their students, and take the time to listen to them and help them.

There are so many great things about Options For Youth, but most of all I would say the personal attention that each student is given.

My daughter attended Options For Youth and received one on one attention which she really needed. She walked away with more knowledge than regular school gave her and I am thankful for what Options For Youth does.

What I love most about our school is that it provides students with a unique opporunity to grow into young men and women by teaching responsibility, commitment, and accountability.

I have been a member of the Options For Youth family for over five years now. It still amazes me how our program can effectively help students who have been lost in the traditional school setting. It makes coming to work worthwhile knowing that we make a difference.

This school allows students to work at their own pace. This way they can catch up on deficient units or just graduate early. They also have a team of teachers that support them with all of thier curriculum. Students get free tutoring and small group instruction on thier math. They are only required to come to school twice a week for 2 hours at a time which leaves them time to work or help out with family if necessary. Most students who come here love this school. I have been teaching for 13 years and have only served less than 2 years with options. I must say, this is the best school I've ever taught at. They care about their students and their future. Way to go Options!!!

I love the fact that all kinds of students are served. Those needing credit, those that can't stand sitting in a classroom for 56 minutes each period and those that are bored by the pace in a traditional school.

This is the best school I have ever attended. I was failing in just a plain normal high school, but at options you get a 1 on 1 experience with your teacher. I actually leaned more in the few years I was at options then in the previous 5 years. It's not for everyone though, you must have self discipline and make sure you do the work. You can also work at the comfort of your own home. This school was life changing!

I been going to options for a minute now and i really like it. You cant really get behind if your studying or atleast making sure you understand what your doing so that your ready to test. Options offers many diffrent oppurtunities and also helps you get to where you wanna be. Ive became way more sufficant since i began going to options!

The staff is so helpful and wonderful. They are a great way for students to get caught up, or one on one attention. We loved it there, and I would consider it for any of my children.

My son did attend Serrano H.S. And this was not for him. He was falling behind, so I began the search and talk to other schools and found that Options For Youth was the best alternative. He is now getting b's and a's and has less stress. Not all kids fit in a large school. He actually has more work to do and earns up to 8 credits a month. He has a lot of reading and the test are not easy. He spend at least 30 hours a week or more doing homework. Its not easy, but it works for him. He wants to attend V.V. College by next year. I'm proud of him. He also is planning on playing soccer this year too. He has outings and has time to be with other students on off hours, which keeps his mind on school only. Also he has great teachers.

My only problem is with all the new work. The teachers should have more control in choosing the work books. My daughter is forced to take a history class at another school. But I like Options in every other way.
