Alternative HS

Hello - Our 15 year old boy has been in RTC and wilderness for the past few years. He returned home in March and is doing OK - some bumps but does not warrant another stay in RTC or wilderness. Our problem right now is that because of his history (some oppositional behaviors), we are having a difficult time finding a HS for him. The district cannot offer anything appropriate, Holden has not accepted him. We are not sure to go from here. Any advice would be helpful.

You might consider Tilden Prep. It is one on one schooling and could be just what you need for the transition period. Fusion is a similar setup.

You may want to consider the Floyd Marchus school in Concord. My son with similar issues attends and they are well equipped to work with him.

We were lucky that our child did get into an alternative school but it was close. I know many families use Fusion. I toured the on in Berkeley and met with the Director. I liked it. If you can afford it I would check it out. It’s possible if they have a positive experience and transition schools like Holden will consider him next year
