Attending Patriot last year made a measurable difference in my 14 year old son's attitude and grades. He is thriving in the smaller classroom and better overall learning environment. I'm very thankful for the option of Patriot versus Vista Ridge where he would have been lost in the crowd!
I am personally attending PLC this year. And I will say it is really an amazing school. It has small class sizes, usually from ten to sixteen kids. Students get the help they need and deserve, plus more one on one attention with teachers and staff. They offer a day school 6th to 12th grade, and a night school that is 9th to 12th grade3 but accept any one who has dropped out of high school that one their diploma (I think they may have a cut off age though). I started there to get my diploma, after dropping out of high school. I needed a lot of one on one time, and hands on learning experience and PLC offers that. Since then my grades and attitude have improved, and I am looking to graduate in May 2013.
Patriot is not for everyone. I have 2 children in PLC,1 goes to night school and he loves it.He was bullied through elementary and jr. high at Evans and Horizon. He ended up in truancy court last yr. at Horizon for being late all the time to avoid bullies as the school wouldn't do anything about it. He is thriving at PLC this yr. My daughter however, isn't doing very well.She came from Evans with good grades and no issues to PLC, now she has behavior issues. She has been referred to as "special" by bus drivers and teachers alike for attending PLC,and has developed behavior issues since attending PLC.Staff are good about keeping me informed as to what's going on, yet my previously well behaved, straight A student is suffering emotionally and academically.She is miserable at PLC. If your child isn't struggling academically, behaviorally, or isn't bullied, PLC is not for your child.Due to her recently developed behavior issues, I'm not sure if another school will take her next yr. She's been labeled by PLC & others, it proves children will live up to expectations placed on them,positive or negative.PLC received the $ for her this yr. so she's stuck there all yr. It's always about $$.
My daughter has attended Patriot since its inception three years ago. The teachers and staff are WONDERFUL and the program really challenges my daughter, while allowing her to be in a smaller class setting. We love it!
My daughter transferred to Patriot after 2 1/2 very unsatisfying years at Sand Creek High School. From the very first day she was happier and more motivated. The teachers have time to answer her questions and are extremely supportive. In a very short time, she caught up with the classes in which she was behind and is now working ahead of schedule. I'm going to try to send my son there next year!
