"STUDENTS DO WELL IF THEY CAN"
Sometimes students need an alternate education because the regular school program simply doesn't meet their needs, and if we can match the students to a program or service where they can have success, chances are much greater that they will do well. It is very challenging to try and offer a program or service for every student who comes our way, but because we believe that 'students do well if they can', we think it is imperative that we offer a wide variety of options to increase the odds all of them can do well!
We also believe that if we collaborate with our students to solve problems, we will more likely create a positive learning plan that will give them an opportunity to do well.
