SHS’s Alternative Education program serves up to 22 students in grades 9-12 and is located in the high school.
Currently, we still have a few openings for new students this school year. Alt Ed is a program of choice--no student is required to attend this program.
The Alt Ed program addresses the individual academic, social, and behavioral needs of students at risk of dropping out of school. Classes in the program involve small groups, participation-based grading, and a high level of individualization. While most core courses and many elective courses are offered through Alt Ed, students are welcomed and encouraged to try additional classes in the traditional program at any time. In addition to academic learning in the classroom, the Alt Ed program integrates team building, field trips, service learning, and career exploration.
If you are interested in learning more about Alt Ed, especially if this sounds like a program that would help your student, please contact your student’s guidance counselor, any of the school social workers, or Ms. Ketch, 730-5000.
