Outreach High School was originally established in 1979 to help students who had dropped out to graduate with a high school diploma. Like all the Outreach schools, its purpose evolved over the years. While the ultimate goal of graduation is the same, it is now geared toward helping students succeed academically through a steady diet of attention, respect and motivation.
The teachers at Outreach are less concerned with discipline than with success. There is no contract system and few rules and regulations. With a small number of students and teachers, the school is divided into three groups. Each student receives one-on-one attention. They also have the comfort of knowing the teacher knows them and their strengths and weaknesses.
Despite the relaxed atmosphere, teachers have certain expectations of students, which are based on punctuality, attendance and performance. It is expected that students must hand work in on time and maintain a positive attitude.
The human interaction and family atmosphere at Outreach help to build self-confidence and self-respect. The teachers assume that students have the capacity to succeed. They are there to help students reach their goal of graduating high school. So while students may have come to Outreach with academic, social and/or behavioural problems, they leave better people.
