Common Indicators of Success for Alternative Education Programs
A Smaller Enrollment: Smaller is better, at least for instructional groups. Teachers know each student, students know and respect one another, there is an overwhelming sense of family and students note that they feel safe and cared about. Meals are often prepared by students and both staff and students eat together.
