MN River Valley Alternative Learning Center-Seatbased Reviews
I went to the Montevideo Senior High School and hated it there. All of the staff were very rude snobbish people. I became a student at the ALC in 2013. I was amazed how kind and nice everyone was. They actually cared about me. I was able to excel because they believed in me, and never made me afraid to come to school. This school might not be for everyone but I was never happy to go to school until then. Of course, school work can get boring, but you will never feel unwelcome, well I guess you could if you treated the staff and students badly. Just be friendly and you will do great there. Also they do have independent classes, so if you are not that social you could request to have some independent classes for home.
