Harrison County United High School
|The mission of Harrison County United High School is to create a supportive community that provides students with a foundation for life-long learning by addressing the intellectual, physical, emotional, social and career needs of at-risk students.|
Harrison County United High School Believes:
|The main purpose of alternative education is to offer educational choices which will encourage development in those individuals whose educational needs are not met by traditional programs. It is, therefore, the responsibility of educators to understand and employ program designs, methods of instruction, and materials which provide the student with the best choices and educational experiences possible. It is the responsibility of students to avail themselves of these special opportunities and to seek their highest level of achievement. Throughout the process, the educator must encourage students to believe in themselves in order that they may grow toward fulfillment of their goals.|
This alternative program addresses those students who are identified as potential dropouts from school. It is designed to allow educators the latitude to permit students to function at their own levels, to experience success and to generate sufficient self-esteem to prevent their dropping out of the school system.
