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.

Abraxas Continuation High School Reviews
I went to this school for only one year, and I have to say that I wish I could of been there from the beginning of High School. The whole school is based off of first names. Teachers don't look down on you like you are some lazy kid who does not want to bother with school, they treat you the way that you treat them. It is all about respect, teachers level with the students they do not act all high and superior. Education wise, it's a simple system, the teachers give you a packet, you do what is on the packet at your own pace, and then you finish. I finished a entire semester of English in about 5 weeks. I finished my classes in April and still got to walk in June. So if you feel like you are not being respected, if you feel like you need to go at your own pace, you want to meet teachers who care about you graduating, and you just want to get out of high school. This is the school for you.
