I graduated from this school and have nothing but good things to say about it. Traditional high school wasn't for me and I honestly learned more here in two years than I did at my city's public school. Not only do you learn the school subjects, but the structure of the school taught me how to prioritze, meet deadlines and manage my time. You find your own motivation at this school. The teachers were fantastic and genuinely care about their students. They will sit down with a student and talk to them to make sure that they are grasping everything to the fullest. They give you honest and thorough feedback vs. just some notes scrawled at the top in red pen. If your child is losing motivation at a traditional school, I highly recommend this one.
The labs really help me. I enjoyed attending this school. The teachers were great, and helpful. This school is more helpful to some students, then a regular school. The hours work to your convenience.
My son finished his high school credits here. He had a very difficult time in regular high school because of ADD. He could not function in environments of noise and he found his niche and was able to complete 2 years worth of work in 1 year and graduated on time! I would reccomend this school to any student who needs an alternative to regular uncaring public school. Sandra Allred, BS Science with secondary Teaching Certificate and BSN (RN)
I have attented ALLC, I have learned more in 2 years there then I did at a Public High School (which took 4 years). Yes, There is a reason most of these students attent ALLC, because the public schools will never give them a Chance!Teachers in public schools won't give them a chance in Plays or Cheerleading because they look for the best, not for who COULD be the best. At My public school I tried out for all the plays and didn't even get on as a extra,the teacher told me 'stop trying, your wasting my time!' For a long time I felt like nothing. I was sent to ALLC and I tried out for a play one last time. Now I go to Westminter Collage for Theater and known as the best in my class.
I actually attended this school and can tell you that it is not for everyone, but you will never find teachers that care more about their students. Students need to find their own motivation and strength in this school. Parents with students that go here also need to learn acceptance, patience, and love. ALLC is a good school with fine teachers, but not for the weak spirited.
I attend ALLC and I personally think that it is a wonderful school. I went to a 'normal' high school and was harrassed daily, I failed all of my classes and dropped out. I can pass off packets with 'A''s and actually have a chance at graduating because the teachers at ALLC are so willing to help anyone. There are very rarely fights, people being 'bullied', judged or any of the average high school things there. Normal high school isn't for everyone and I'm very happy that I have the Option of going to ALLC.
I attend ALLC currently. Contrary to popular beliefe, it is NOT a place for 'losers'. Many kids there are acctualy ahead. I am 15 years old and will graduate befor i turn 16. If people wold take the time to acctualy see what the kids there can do, they would not hesitate to send their children to this fine school.
I'm a student at ALLC right now. I believe it is a wonderful place that allows students to find their own center, and has a great support system of teachers, administrators, and counselors. I have friends that help me get my work done, in only 1 semester I have finished 7 credits. I ask you not to listen to the nasty rumors people like to spread about us. We are not a druggie place. We just have fewer students, so it's more noticable. I came to ALLC because of some failed classes, and now I'm a complete over achiever. I just wish we had more parents involved. That's THEIR choice though. For now, I'm giving my school a good name.
I have a daughter attending ALLC right now and wouldn't recommend it if possible. While the program itself is okay, most of the kids attending are there for a reason...that they couldn't succeed. My first experience with ALLC was getting a 8th grade Earth Science packet for my daughter because she had failed a semester and needed that credit going into high school. Within a few weeks, my mostly conservative daughter now had a whole new set of friends that I would consider losers on every level. This lead to a tumultuous 3 years for us culminating in runaway incidences, exposure to drugs & sex...about everything that a parent worries about happening to their children. While I understand that 'water finds it's own level' and my daughter had the choice not to associate with these kids, I've wished that I had not started her on that path.
I went there last year, I walked with them. The teachers are so willing to bend backwards for their students,(its one on one time with the teachers) most of the kids there are really smart, they just get board with regular high school, yes... some times a couple of the students came 'high' but the teachers crack down hardest on that sort of action, ALLC is more DURGFREE then most of the high schools, if I could do it all over again I would in a heart beat, going to ALLC taught me somethings I would not have learnd in regular high school, that's self respect, gratude and honor. thats only a little of what ALLC taught me yes, ALLC was a good thing for me, I just hope that I can teach and serve as much as the teachers do there every day. Thats all I wanted to say.
This school is alright for just making up credits, but when it comes to the students attending full-time, (I am one of them) there really isn't a whole lot of extracurricular activities available to us. Also, they are now changing a lot about the school. When making the decision to come to this school, I, along with many others, wanted to come here because we do not perform well in a regular-school setting. The changes that they are making are turning this alternative high school into a normal high school, which is exactly what we students do not want. We came here to get away from exactly what they are turning it into.
I attended this school 3 years ago. I noticed in one of the other reviews that someone said there are a lot of people who are pregnant or who show up to school high. I wanted to put the story straight for you all. A lot of pregnant teenagers take advantage of this school because it is a good way to still stay in school (instead of dropping out to take care of the baby.)and not have to find a babysitter or be judged by people who already know her at school. Alpine Life and learning Center provides a free day care if you are a student who has children. People make mistakes and shouldn't be judged for being pregnant. As for people who go there high, so what? How many students go to school high at other schools, or actually do drugs at school? I know, I was there.
I attended ALLC 3 years ago. It was the best experience of my entire life. I learned that I could be self-motivated. that life wasn't all about doing what the 'boss' (or teacher) tells you to do. You will learn that working at your own pace, you will feel 100 percent better about the things that you accomplish, because you did it for yourself, not just because you 'had' to. I wouldn't recommend any other school. If you are currently considering going to this school, or sending your child to this school, I would advise you not to give it another thought. It is in my opinion and my classmates' opinions the best school out there, especially if your child is already struggling in a regular school. It will boost their self confidence, and they will be glad they went there.
ALLC was a good experience for my brother it showed him he could succed. It helped him finish his credits because he wasn't able to finish them in high school in the first place. AllC gives students a way to make up a credit or just to get ahead of other students so they can graduate eary or something like that I think it's a good thing for kids to have when needed.
My daughter loves this school. She is actually likes going to school I recomend that any parent whos child has a hard time in regualer school should think about sending them there.
This is the worst scool ever to be built on the face of the earth. More than half of the students come to school high or stoned every day. A great majority of the girls gere are preganet. If you want to keep your child out of trouble and away from bad things and bad influences keep them away from this school!! that all.
I actually attended this school myself a few years back. I can honestly say it was the best school I attended. The idea behind the school, at the time was very unique. I believe it still is. It is a wonderful experience for students and parents alike. I would recommend this school to any parent whos child has a hard time in traditional schools.
I think ALLC offers an opportunity for students to succeed -- to take control of their lives and feel they can accomplish whatever they set their sights on.
