Academics – The World is Our Classroom
Street School incorporates research-based principles into all academics. The teaching methods, classroom environments, activities and school outings are all based on the latest scientific research on how the brain learns.  The World Is Our Classroom approach provides students the opportunity to learn through real life experiences and reinforces classroom learning. Field trips, wilderness adventures, internships, and community service learning outreach programs are ongoing for the entire school year.  Through these experiences, students gain knowledge and develop skills in team building, communication, and leadership while learning about their world.

 

Therapeutic Counseling Program
Our founders understood that if a student’s personal and emotional needs are not addressed then their ability to focus in school is diminished. Academics can quickly become secondary due to a variety of circumstances and frequently, problems that surface at Street School have been unaddressed in public schools or a student’s home.  

Counseling is a critical part of the Street School program and each student is assigned a counselor that is a licensed professional. Students meet regularly with their assigned counselor for therapy and connections to essential community resources, college applications and opportunities beyond high school.

 

First-Offender Program
Students participating in the First-Offender Program have been identified by juvenile courts as having committed acts that do not warrant adjudication, but require intervention with a focus on preventing future offenses. The program enables individuals to resolve conflicts positively; assume responsibility and realize consequences for their actions. Participants gain a clear understanding and insight into peer pressure and impulsive behavior. This program is only for first offenders under the age of 18.
