Alternative High School Program

A credit recovery pathway designed specifically for overage and under-credited students. The program runs on a semester system, allowing students to catch up on credits in 18-week classes. The program runs from 2:45 pm – 7:15 pm Monday through Thursday. Students have a college-like schedule, with classes that meet two days a week for ninety minutes. Standards-based classes utilize modified and condensed curricula to ensure that students are exposed to all required content.  

Some services the AHS program offers are:

-Academic monitoring and tracking

-Daily check-ins and social-emotional support

-A more personalized learning environment

-Smaller teacher to student ratio

-School based counseling

-Academic progress reports

-MCAS Prep classes

-Frequent individual student/parent meetings

Dropout Re-Engagement

If you are a Plymouth resident between the ages of 15 and 20 years old who has left school, it is our goal to get you reconnected and back on track toward a high school diploma.  We have successfully helped many students come back and graduate.
