Ombudsman opened their Charter East II campus in 1996 for students in 6th through 12th grades to give students and families the opportunity to attend a school other than the traditional schools in the area. Students that are behind in credits, have poor academic standings, or have adult responsibilities had the option to attend day or night classes to attain their goal of graduating high school. The school offers syllabus model, computer based, personalized instruction and 4-hour school day.
Parents choose Ombudsman schools as their children are not doing well in traditional school. Some are skipping school, feeling overwhelmed, work full time jobs and have responsibilities that make it hard to attend school. The school provides the ability for students to work at their own pace which is exceptional as slow learners and gifted can both attain their goals. Teachers are present to work with each student that needs extra help.
Parents and students alike had good things to say about the school that is helping students graduate from high school as long as they apply themselves. The students participated in the AIMS series of exams with percentages of students passing the exam being below average in reading, science, writing, and math. You must remember though that student’s work at their own pace and most students were at risk of dropping out of school before enrolling in this school.
Before enrolling your child it would be best to make sure that it is a good fit. Take a tour, talk with parents, and teachers to help you make the best choice for your child’s education.
