    I really appreciate the dedication of the staff at Choice. They truly love dealing with kids who need flexibility for one reason or another. They put in hours of extra work individualize to meet kids' needs and make good neighbors (my elementary school is next door.) Some of my best classroom volunteers have come from Choice and I am grateful for their quality.

    I graduated from CHOICE in 2008. It is an alternative High School and great for students who have difficulty in regular school settings. Among its staff are many Mason County Teacher of the Year recipients including Susan Bernard Stacey Anderston and Ron Grinnel. Susan went on to win Washington Teacher of the Year I believe.

    This school gives you the chance to excel if you are driven enough to try for it. I graduated high school in three years with two years of college under my belt while attending this school.
