|The Alternative High School is designed for students grades 9-12 who seek a smaller, more personalized educational environment. The small school size, dedicated and caring staff, and flexible instructional format provide a challenging and motivating environment that focuses on students' interests and strengths. Each student has an individual learning plan and attends classes 4 days per week (Monday through Thursday). Students are expected to complete 13 hours of additional schoolwork at home each week.
Tutoring sessions are available on Fridays for students who need extra support. Additionally, students who have skill deficits in the areas of Reading or Math may be required to attend additional classes during the school day.
The Alternative High School Transition Program provides an opportunity for students who are not currently enrolled or attending school to begin to earn credits by completing work in a concentrated alternative setting with the goal of transitioning back to their home high school or the WRAP Alternative High School at the next quarter or term. Typically, students attend 3 hours per day, 4 days per week, with the goal of earning 1 to 1.5 credits each quarter. GED Prep is also available.
Summer School also provides a credit recovery opportunity during the summer. Classes are usually offered during the month of July, and students may enroll for .5 to 1.5 credits. The fee for summer school is typically about $140.00 per half credit. Special arrangements are available for students who qualify for free or reduced lunch.
