I cannot praise this school enough! Absolutely amazing setup. If your child has social anxiety, is behind on credits or WHATEVER is preventing them from succeeding, Extend can really give them the tools to succeed. My daughter had horrible social anxiety starting in 8th grade and I was overwhelmed about how she would do in high school. After trying El Dorado High, Project Encore, and other alternatives, we tried out Extend. Worked wonders. I have to say, in complete honesty, within the first semester, her social anxiety had decreased by a lot! The setting is perfect: two large, open rooms with plenty of windows, spaced out tables, and only about 20 students, I'm estimating. The teachers - when she attended-not sure who teachers there now-were phenomenal! In particular, Beikman, Klem, Goehring, Becker. They were beyond understanding and patient. She made straight A's there! Because she was able to concentrate and not have to worry about anxiety or attendance!
