We are losing youth every day around the country who do not believe that education is a viable option. These youth leave schools for various reasons. Some are just not responding to the traditional structure of school–needing to move faster or needing more innovative means of instruction to keep them engaged. Others have serious family responsibilities that they must tend to that make attending school in a traditional sense difficult and seemingly impossible. There are other cases of individuals who have been out of school for years, not having had obtained their high school diploma, hoping to go back to school, but not knowing where to start. The individual stories of these individuals vary even more, and schools like Arlington Mill High School serve as a source of hope for them all.
