    I am so thankful for all that The Jackson County School of Alternatives has done to help my son ( who has a learning disability). The staff has been great very patient kind and thoughtful both to my child and my family. They have tought him so much that other wise he would have never known.

    I have found teachers and staff at 'The HUB' that care about my child enough to encourage through words and actions that I know will follow my child's success in everday life.

    I love this school. My son could not succeed in another school and this has helped him with his behaviors and his reading and Math. I wish there were more schools like this one.

    This school is probably the only reason I graduated high school. The teachers are amazing and the school is willing to help students take advantage of every opertunity presented before them whether it be a senior project or even the high school out-door pursuits class. David 'the secratary' should be the priciple!
