    A great little school! The staff are wonderful and seem to really care about the students. Lots of ways for creative kids to get an honest education that works for them.

    The best program for my daughter who was failing high school...She was able to work at her own pace with limited direction. Her grades went from F's to A's. She is now a Junior in college!!
