We are a nontraditional high school specializing in transition services for our students. We offer a unique high school program with emphasis on preparing our students for life after high school. It is from this emphasis that we adopted our student motto,
"Learning Today for a Better Tomorrow "
and our staff theme,
"Moving Up, Moving On, and Moving Out"
