The ALPs (Alternative Learning Program) room was created to fill a need in the district to teach and serve students with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders. It has been at Mile High for about fifteen years and has evolved over the years into a mixture of academic instruction and social skills practice. The goal of the program is to help these students acclimate and adjust to life on the entire school campus. ALPs is located in a room with two teachers and two behavior coaches; this provides each student with the individualized attention that they need to succeed. This personal instruction and attention to specific needs and desires, along with a genuine concern for each situation, helps the student to feel like they are a part of the total school environment while they learn and grow as both students and citizens.
