Walbridge High School has been designed to meet the educational, social, and emotional needs of students who learn differently, and who haven’t been successful in traditional schools.
We do not accept applicants with drug or alcohol related problems, or with disruptive behavioral problems.
We serve students who learn differently, or have learning disabilities, in a safe and secure learning environment; we expect all of our students to be motivated to learn.
We are a small school, and admission is highly selective and based largely on the applicant’s desire to learn and work, regardless of current academic achievement levels.
Walbridge High School offers a supportive small school environment.
We focus on uncovering and developing the strengths of students.
Academic progress is carefully monitored and measured to make certain that we are meeting the learning needs of our students.
Student curriculum is highly focused on core academic courses.
Students have the opportunity to receive credit for non-traditional, community-based education, such as work-study internships, and learning experiences with other educational organizations.
We believe that all students evidence differences in the way they learn, and that the likelihood of school success is enhanced when an educational program is designed to support the learning strengths of the individual student.
We believe that when students discover “how they learn best”, they recognize their strengths, develop confidence, and can more fully realize their human potential.
Many students come to us with lowered self-esteem and confidence due to negative experiences they have had in other schools.
At Walbridge, we help students develop self-reliance as they learn to tackle educational and social challenges.
