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 Farwell Timberland Alternative High School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Farwell Timberland Alternative High School Reviews
I personally loved this school. I am a young mother and not only was this school helpful because I had to stay home a lot and the classes were mainly online, but I was able to finish up my schooling and graduate in 4 months! The teachers who are there are wonderful and I love how relaxed the environment is!
I attend the Timberland High school, I love it there.
Originally, I was asked to go to the alternative or Timberland, because of my grades, and I decided to stay because I like it better than the Farwell High school. But that is just my opinion.
