• The Anoka-Hennepin School District offers alternative programs for high school students who do not excel in traditional school settings. Students are referred to these programs from their high school; storefront referrals for students who have dropped out of school and would like to return to complete their high school education.

    The alternative high school program offers

    • Academic high school courses using small group, individualized, or computerized instruction;
    • Elective courses that meet diploma credit requirements; vocational exploration; and
    • Independent study curriculum that will work in conjunction with classes offered in the program.
    Students can self-refer to these alternative schools or be referred by their principal or counselor. The program is designed for students who need a smaller class setting, more flexibility or for those who are not being successful in a traditional school.
