My overall experience with Frank Chruch High School was the epihpany of Resiliance and Perserverence, which just so happen to be the schools motto. With the help of Frank Church's opportunies as well as amazing staff I was able to get sober off of drugs, regain my motivation and dedication for a successful education and make extreme progress towards my long-term career goal.

The School is amazing a lot of people think it’s meant for “bad kids” but it’s no where close to that. Students that come here have more real life experience then any other students they come here to try to prove they aren’t what they are put out to be. The teachers are always making sure you are mentally and physically stable to be in class they offer lots of help if you don’t understand and realize school isn’t just about learning it’s about improving your life in general.
The small population allowed students to have more interaction with the staff. The school also had a no homework policy which eliminated stress on the student population. Due to the small population higher level classes, extracurricular activities, and college preparedness were not always offered every semester which could impact your ability to get in to 4 year colleges.
