Alternative Education Campuses Overview
Patriot High School is a high school in an alternative setting, now in its fifth year. Educators facilitate a diverse, supportive and respectful community that combines the creativity and commitment of students, teachers and parents with lessons learned within their environment. Patriot High School is a public school, however there is an application process for admission. We focus on credit recovery and graduating students and strive to create an environment where all students want to be in school and succeed.
Patriot High School is a choice enrollment school. Students are chosen through the combined input of parents, the referring school, and the teachers and administration at Patriot High School. They are admitted on a needs and numbers basis, with the final decision coming from Patriot High School. If students do not take advantage of the center's unique opportunities, they will be sent back to their home schools, and other students will be admitted. Students are required to pass the GENESIS program or they will not be admitted into the school. The program is designed to help students be successful in social settings. Educators concentrate on affective needs to help ensure improvements in student behavior.
At Patriot High School, community involvement is essential to the school mission. Staff members work with senior citizens, Exchange Club, Colorado Springs Soup Kitchen, Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region, Adopt-A-Road Clean-Up, Mill Dog Rescue, Goodwill, TESSA--an advocate group for battered women--as well as other organizations.
