About This School
Alternative schools are public schools that offer nontraditional education for students whose needs cannot be met in a regular, special education, or vocational school. While alternative schools are distinct from regular, special education, and vocational schools in their teaching approach or classroom environment, they can provide similar services and/or curriculum for students. Alternative schools include schools for potential dropouts, residential treatment centers for substance abuse, schools for chronic truants, and schools for students with behavioral problems.

Almanor High (Continuation) High School Reviews
Almanor High School, under the direction of Ms. Pam Birdsall, was a godsend for my son. He had trouble with the structure of the traditional school environment. Thankfully this option was available. Ms. Birdsall relates to each student on his or her level and finds ways to motivate that works for each individual.
I'm a graduate from Almanor High School. It is not just a school for those who have issues and cannot be enrolled in a regular high school. I was a teenage mother working two jobs and still going to school full time. If it wasn't Almanor High I wouldn't be a Heald College Student today obtaining an associates degree for Business Administration Management. I learned everything at Almanor High that I would or learned at a regular high school. And just to let to let people know, Heald College is not a trade or vocational college, it is an highly accredited junior college.
