I go to extended day in lexington nc. The school has been so great this year. i love everyting about it. Online learning makes school so much less stressful and the teachers are so nice. i am 15 years old and i dropped out my regular high school and i came to this school at the begining of last semester. i was far behind last semester and caught up very fast with the help of the amazing teachers. so i hope this school does not close because if it does many kids won't have anywhere else to go

My son is graduating from Extended this year. The teachers in this school are INCREDIBLE!! They do everything that they possibly can to help these kids succeed, unlike in other schools (North Davidson) where if your child has problems, they get thrown to the side!! Their focus IS education, not sports or other activities that take the attention away from learning. Many of the kids that struggle in a regular school need to look into Extended. The learning environment is much more effective and much more tolerable.

Wow! Maybe if schools didn't have to beg for money, and all schools were given an EQUAL amount of money, there would be no child left behind.
