Smokiam Alternative High School Reviews
This school is actually very hard.You get your work that is on your grade level, but you get A LOT of it. Working three hours a day there, you get more work done in one day then you do a week at a regular school.Also the teachers are outstanding.They build a personal relationship with the students making it feel like a family, a home away from home.
