I owe a lot to this school. They helped me graduate when I thought I had no options. Some of the teachers are hard to understand, but all really love what they're doing and try to help as best as they can. The leadership at this school is fantastic. They're very friendly, and they strive to approach every problem they face without bias. The courses are quite easy, but keep in mind that it is an alternative high school. It's a horse of a different color. Read Full Review

I went to this school and I have to say that I did graduate with a high GPA, that is not normally the case. Teachers sit in the front of the class while students sit at their desks and read books. One teacher I had was from Russia and any time I had a question, I could never understand her because her accent was so thick. If you want your children to learn anything valuable, do not let them go to this school. I can honestly say that I don't think I learned anything while attending. I am now a college graduate but i attribute most of that to my middle school education and my parents. Read Full Review
