Being at this school gave me opportunity chances, that I would never get in a regular school. It allowed me to gain more independents in myself and work. The teachers motivated me to push myself. Since we did computer work at our own pace. This allowed us to move up in our grades faster. Helping us go on to college and perusing our dreams. We also can choose to take our courses in class with a teacher, to provide extra assistance. To get a better understanding in our course. I needed help in some areas. So I choose both. The teachers were very helpful. They made sure I grasp the subject. Thankfully not in an annoying way. I've always hate history. I found it boring and overwhelming. But my teacher at the time, help me get pass that. She made it more interesting and fun. She explained more, then just giving us a book. When I was here I enjoyed it, I would even recommend this school to anybody who wants to get out of school faster.

I took self paced classes to graduate a year earlier and did as planned. I had other obligations and priorities which is why I chose to do that but a suggestion to other students is don't rush through it, its a lot harder than you would think. Enjoy learning the more educated you are the better.
Its good the teachers will take care of you and is self paced. Some courses are on the computer. Each class is 2 hours and is good because the school is small and you get to know your teachers well.
