Alternative High Schools are Giving D.C. Students Another Shot at Graduation

Luke C. Moore High School might not be typical, but the students there have the same big dreams as other D.C. public school students.

Quion Shears, 19, wants to get a degree at Clark Atlanta University and hopes to become a real estate agent.

Clashé Simmons, 19, is making plans to attend college to get her degree in criminal justice.

Shears and Simmons are like hundreds of other Luke students, who a few years ago were dropouts or so far behind in traditional schools that it was unclear whether they would ever be able to get their high school diplomas. One of four alternative schools in the public school system, Luke serves students who did not do well elsewhere; nearly 70 percent of the student body is between ages 18 and 24, and all of them were not on track to get their diplomas in their neighborhood schools.

Alternative schools such as Luke often carry a reputation for not providing the same opportunities or holding students to the same academic standards as traditional schools, but the District is spending more money in an attempt to change that.
