Alternative schools are usually smaller schools with flexible schedules created for teenagers who don't work well in a normal school environment.

Common reasons for going to an alternative school: Teen pregnancy, mental illnesses, addiction, learning disablities, and behavior problems.

AKA VAS
A close knit school that goes from kindergarten to twelfth grade.Everyone is called by their first name.No clubs or teams (no winning teams anyways).No gym but there is a farm.High schoolers are aloud off campus for lunch and every Tuesday and Thursday 10-12 graders that choose to are either bussed off to Valley Collage or a job site (where they intern).It seems like an easy school but it is hard for the new kids.And the total amount of students is around 300-500 mostly Armenians and Hispanics.
