What is an Alternative School?
Traditional high school can be seen as a “one-size-fits-all” system for educating students. For students who need something a little different, alternative high schools can meet that need. Alternative schools are not just for at-risk students, though they can definitely help those who are at risk of failing or dropping out to get back on track. More importantly, however, alternative schools are for any student whose educational needs are not being met by the traditional system.
