Alternative HIgh School that works miracles. My daughter attended the summer program and it was a miracle how it turned her attitude around towards everything. Everyone who knew her before and after says the same thing. The counselors and teachers there were very caring for her and for us. The summer school has a ratio of almost one to one in terms of adults to students. We dropped off a sad, defiant, rude 15 year old child and were greeted with hugs, heart felt apologies and a new outlook on everything, well beyond our expectations. I picked this school because I could not stomach a more strict kind of institution for her. Their approach is with firmness and kindness. We literally arrived on drop off day knowing nothing about the school, except what we gleened from emails to its founder, taking a huge leap of faith, and we were so very very happy we did.
a private high school for students who have bombed in more typical schools for a variety of reasons- learning differences, bullying, recovering from substance abuse- While we haven't had our student there long yet, we are seeing slow and steady improvement and are hopeful for the future. Much good going on, sincere caring. I have heard stories from parents whose kids have been there longer about their turn-around, both academic and personal.
