What the Expert Says:

Most alternative schools are designed to help students struggling with behavioral or academic difficulties.  These schools sometime feature individualized schedules or curriculum but not always.  Also keep in mind that some alternative schools work only in cooperation with other schools from the district.  In order to determine the specific requirements or features of an alternative program you will need to contact that school directly to ask your questions.  

If you are struggling with school issues and think that it would help to talk with a  counselor by telephone, please feel free to contact the Boys Town National Hotline at 1-800-448-3000.  Trained counselors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help you talk through tough situations.
