The Carriage House alternative classroom continues to offer a variety of individualized programming for students to assist them in reaching their goals. This semester one of our ongoing students will join the ranks of past students in earning her Ontario Secondary School Diploma, and will be walking across the stage with her peers. It will be a particularly proud moment for her as she will become the first member of her family to receive this distinction. “If not for the Carriage House School, I would not have been able to finish high school, as regular school never worked for me,” the student says. The Carriage House and the one-on-one help I received changed my future for the better and my family is so proud of me.
Thanks to continued collaboration with the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board, YES offers youth a more positive future with this uniquely tailored educational program that continues to be valued and supported by our various community partners.
