Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I love this school! My son went from having a .23 to honor roll since coming to ARA! The students are calmer and many kids are finally getting the academic structure they miss being in traditional classes. If education is the key we need to stop short changing our kids. Kids only get 1 year in alternative school. I wish it was longer... I am glad I let my son see what he is capable of in the right setting. We need more schools like this!

I was a student at Bladensburg Alternative High School in the first half of the 2005-2006 school year. I started off as a failing student held back two years. I became an honor roll student after the first to quarters in Bladensburg Alt. High school year and had earned my right to transfer back to my current high school. I went on to my current high school to become a 4.0 student. With hard work and determination I earned my right into Hampton University. I also earned countless awards in my school's science department. Bladensburg Alt. High School was a great way for me to hone my talents and learn new things about different people aswell. I will be going on to major in Chemistry thanks to Bladensburg Alt. High School's 'push' so to say. Thank You

My daughters grades have improved tremendously since she began classes at the Alternative High School. She is now an honor roll student. The classes she's taking are great, because they offer skills which will prepare her for college and the work force such as the 'SAT Prep Classes' and 'Computer Graphics.' The classroom sizes are small, which allows the teachers to attend to the students individually. My only complaint is that no foreign languages are offered at this time, which is mandatory in some cases for a student to graduate. I wish my daughter didn't have to return to her community based high school next year, but I'm sure she's gained much knowledge and self discipline which will carry her throughout her senior year.
