Our school offers three Mentoring Programs through our partnership with the Alternative Schools Network. The programs support students develop skills and dispositions—such as resilience, perseverance, and determination—to ensure that they can problem-solve and work through challenges, as well as, take ownership of their learning and decisions. Our mentoring programs provide meaningful opportunities to help students develop into responsible adults.
