Keifer Alternative Center Reviews

By , a Former Student on

It has been a long time since I attended Keifer, but during my time there I learned a lot about myself and even more about being a better student. They taught me the importance of learning and giving it my all. Sometimes I find myself remembering all the great times I had when I was there, and missing all of my wonderful teachers! I'm sure some are gone but they were all amazing to me! I left after my first year there, I was given the option to go back to my home school, and though I missed my old friends, the new people I met had lasting impressions on me. If I had continued on at Keifer I probably would have graduated, but because I decided to go back, I dropped out shortly after. My regret is leaving Keifer. They call it an alternative school, and some think that is a bad thing, really it just gives students like myself a different and new way of learning! I would recommend this school to any student who is having problems fitting in at their homeschool, or who just have issues learning.
