ROADS Charter High School
At this point in the year you can probably identify young people who are off-track and likely to repeat the grade. These students are at risk of becoming disconnected and dropping out. Every year, thousands of students drop out of high school or fail to be promoted out of middle school. There are traditionally very few options for these students – GED programs typically don’t accept 15 or 16 year olds and most transfer high schools won’t accept students with less than 11 credits.
ROADS Charter High Schools (Brooklyn and Bronx) are an option for these students.
