NUTRITION

We are grateful for a nutrition, culinary and gardening program, Students  grow fruits and vegetables  on the school grounds and then sell them at the Columbia City farmers market and keep the proceeds.

BIKE WORKS

We are grateful for Bike Works which teaches our students to build and refurbish bicycles. In November, 260 free bikes were given by our under privileged entrepreneur students to younger, needy children in the area.

TRADE SKILLS

We are grateful for classes in welding, woodworking and carpentry.  One project is building tiny houses for Seattle's homeless.

King County Juvenile Detention

We are grateful for classes at King County Juvenile Detention (for our students 18-21). Six students graduated in June from King County Juvenile Detention!

JOYFUL MOMENTS

We are grateful that our Principal, Kaaren Andrews, believes every day should have at least one moment of joy.

MUSIC

We are grateful for a donated piano enjoyed by hundreds of students; some discovering for the first time their ability to play and compose music.

GRADUATION

We are grateful that nearly 100 students graduate each June, against unimaginable odds and threats in this unique academic environment.
