“Everyone thinks Street School is where the “bad kids” go. It’s not like that. Street School is a place for kids whose education had to take a back seat for awhile. Students at Street School had already dropped out or were on the verge of not going back to their traditional school anymore. Period. Just because of the name – “Street School” – people associate us with something negative.
Street School is judgement free zone where kids can get back on track not only with their education but with life. Street School is a family. The teachers and counselors really care and want you to succeed.
