  • The teachers and staff are absolutely amazing; they truly care about the students. For a lot of these students this is their last chance and here they are given an environment to succeed in. The students have to earn every credit, however without this staff they would have never known they were capable of so much. Not all students learn the same; however every student deserves an education and if we didn’t have these amazing people to stand by our kids we would have a higher dropout rate.
