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 St Clair County Juvenile Detention Center's test results to learn more about school performance.

The teach the kids nothing here
This is a jail for kids and the school is regulated for only an hour out of their cells at most (in which the kids color or write letters to their family. They do not teach nor test here and do not make an effort to educate the kids so that they can develop into competent adults. It's no wonder why these kids go on to be criminals as adults.
