From Walnut Creek Campus

We are a school who practices restorative justice, which is a collaborative process that helps students learn positive communication skills and helps them to take ownership for their behavior.

At Walnut Creek Campus we are also constantly addressing how we can make the curriculum more rigorous, relevant and engaging. We all know that students learn best when they are appropriately challenged and when they see a clear purpose for their learning. The academic component is designed to accommodate students who have not met with success in the comprehensive high school or who have special learning needs. In addition, class sizes are small and everything we do is designed to meet the needs of our students.

I firmly believe that without relationships, very little can be accomplished. Our hope is that every student, parent/guardian, and staff member feels cared for and lifted.
