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. See Alpha School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Alpha School Reviews
i think that alpha school is okay!! because the teachers help you with your work more than a teacher would at regular school, and also would get you on the right track for when you go back to regular school. Its pretty out standing to me because i never really had a teacher who would help me out with my work and let me stay after class and make up my assingments and i think that is big help so thanks,Mrs.Chester,Mrs.Edwards,Ms.CLark,Mr.Hobson,Mrs.Harvey,Mr.Young,Mr.brown,and Mr.Bridges
Alpha Academy is Rockdale County's Last chance for expelled students. For those students sentenced to com here, do not panic. Though Alternative schools have a bad reputation, Alpha is a fine school. The staff is certified, and courteous to the students. The security is better than any other Rockdale County Schools, and the Rockdale County DJJ's probation officers are almost constantly there to insure that the students are acting correctly. The class sizes range from three to ten, and there is a teacher ratio of about 1:4. The administration takes an active roll in the student's well-being, and issues are usually resolved before they get out of hand. The teachers use a unique approach that is more hands on than the traditional teaching method.The uniforms are a pricey (55$ per alpha shirt) but usually you can get by with a shirt that is khaki colored. Jeans are prohibited but khaki, or khaki cargo pants are allowed. If you are expelled from Rockdale County Public Schools, you could not ask for a better place to learn.
