Instruction in our school is designed to meet individual student learning styles, as well as, each student's social and emotional needs.  Teachers focus on building connections with each student and focus on vocational and career skills, including independent study options. Our school success is made possible with the help of a variety of community, county, and state partnerships that provide additional support and resources.
