Willard Alternative High School – Second Take [Part III] [AUDIO]

We’ve heard from Willard’s principal and a teacher.  What’s it like to be a student at Willard?  Today we learn the answer to that question.

Michael Achenbach is a Junior at Willard Alternative High School.  He’s a typical Willard student: complicating factors largely beyond his control impede his ability to succeed in a traditional high school environment.  Things didn’t work out so well somewhere else…they’re working out just fine at Willard.

Willard doesn’t have organized sports teams, a marching band, or a lot of the club activities that build school spirit.  What Willard does have is a sense of purpose, a loyalty and pride in being part of a program that works for young people.  And, it has a mascot: the crow.  An apt choice!  Curious and adaptable, crows are considered among the world’s most intelligent animals.  Go Crows!

You’ll find all you ever wanted to know about crows at Frequntly Asked Questions About Crows.
