What is an Alternative Learning Environment

Community:  Del Amigo enrolls high school students who are at least 16 years of age and need support in order to get back on track toward graduation.  Most students apply to Del Amigo because of credit deficiencies or a desire to attend a school in a smaller setting that may address individual student needs in smaller classrooms. The school is located in the town of Danville, in the San Ramon Valley, a suborn community located approximately 35 miles east of San Francisco. A high percentage of its residents are business executives and professionals.

At the end of each grading session, student achievement and progress is evaluated to determine appropriate class placement for the subsequent grading period. English and Math classes are offered at different degrees of challenge.

Graduation Requirements:  Students must earn 210 credits to graduate (courses completed with a grade of "D" of better). Credits must include: four years of English, two years of math, two years of science, three and a half years of social science, two years of physical education, one semester of health, and two yearsfrom two of the following: foreign language, fine art, or technical/visual-performing arts.
