Street Schools

Street Schools.jpg
A group of "street schools" serve severe at-risk youth, usually students turned-out by other schools serving at-risk populations. The National Association of Street Schools has a membership of 43 schools serving some 3,000 students. All are private schools with a range of funding including the Gates Foundation's Alternative High School Initiative. The first, the Denver Street School started 21 years ago in Denver by Tom Tillapaugh and received recognition in the U.S. Department March, 2006 issue of the Education Innovator. Another choice for learning.
