Wasn't right 4 me.

In 2011 I graduated from this school.
The main things I hated...
1- Therapy time. this is when you have core (advisory) and have to gather in a cirlce, make a dedication, light a candle and talk about feelings. Remember, it's educaton!
2- Teachers. My algebra II teacher seemed to have a drinking issue and would for the most part relate her personal life to the lessons. There are a couple big tall ghetto guys walking the campus & don't do anything. They are the deans or something like that.
3- Students. Well it's a school for kids who are troubled. you're going to be surrounded by kids with A.D.D, or kids who can't succeed in public school because of their own ""issues"". There's not much diversity, even though the school tries to portray that they do.
4- Community Service. Most schools are doing this now. some private schools don't have it, but this one does. I think it should be illegal to work for free. That's why people go out and get jobs. So Mid-Pen is pretty much saying in order to get the diploma that you must work for free. How generous.
5- Music Class. It's just covering songs. Everyone has to agree to one, so you're most likely going to play one everyone knows. & if someone isn't as advanced and is with your class then you just got to deal with it.
6- On my 2011 high school graduation ceremony, some lunatic came up on the stage and gave a speech expressing how we came to be. The big bang & evolution. I have faith, so that's not exactly what I want to hear. I'm sure there were other people there who were also strong believers themselves there.

I got recommended to this school by a therapist who i no longer see. :-)
Before i attended Mid-Pen I was in public school(s). By going to this school, getting my diploma would be less stressful and easier.

If you don't mind going through the things I mentioned and don't mind paying a ton of $ then I'm sure you'll have no problem getting your diploma. i never did my homework.

Looking for the right place for your teen is a challenge.

We found Mid-Pen after an exhaustive search of private schools in the south bay. Together with our daughter, we drew up a spread sheet for rating all the schools we saw. Mid-Pen was the unanimous choice for our family because it had enough structure to keep the kids on track while still offering adequate flexibility to meet our child's needs.

Now, three months into the school year we are confident that it was the right choice. Mid-Pen has a warm and friendly community of administrators, teachers and parents. Our child has made good friends with whom we feel comfortable. We know that each day she is in a safe, supportive environment. And, she is loving it. Definitely college bound. All this after an abysmal public school experience.

Worth looking at as you examine options for your teen.
