I love school now! Used to want to drop out before coming to Alternatives In Action. Gave school one more chance by coming here, for my parents, and so glad I did. I look forward to graduating soon and college after that.

My school has four after school classes;Sound recording studio in which students learn about media and sound,3d art class where students express their creativity through art, debate and law where students do actual cases for the school,and a daycare where students gain babysitting and teaching skills.There is a also a school soccer team.
This school will push you.Even if you give up on certain classes.They will do there best to put you on your feet again. They point you in the direction of success.Teachers build relationships with students becoming like aunts and uncles.There is no favorite students but favorite teachers and staff.The school is a family and I'm going to miss it once I graduate.
