What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

High School/Secondary Education

As an alternative high school, we offer a second, third, fourth chance to students who have chronic truancy, disciplinary, and substance abuse challenges. With our small school size, and intentionally small student to teacher ratio (3:1) we have the tools and support necessary to help these students get their lives on track and graduate with their high school diploma.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We want to exceed the graduation rate of Washington State in our alternative high school program.

With small class sizes and student/teacher ratios we strive to create a learning environment that addresses students deficiencies. The Washington State graduation rate hovers around 79% while our graduation rate currently hovers around 95%.

Our goals are currently being met for graduation rate at 100% of our students graduating. Enrollment and outreach strategies to all students will help us continue to meet this goal as we continue to create new opportunities for students.

We are on track for a 100% graduation rate for the 20-21 school year.
