Principal's Message

Welcome to Smokiam Alternative High School! Acceptance into this program gives you an alternative to regular high school.  For some it is the opportunity to attend school for the first time, for others it is the opportunity to catch up and return to regular high school, for others it enables you to work or care for young children while still obtaining a high school diploma.

We welcome each student as an individual and your program of study will be tailored to fit your needs. Our goals this year are to help each student recognize the potential of his or her future; to provide an education that gives each student maximum opportunity to successfully pursue their future goals, to create a partnership with students and parents, and to create a caring, civil and safe environment for all.

Please visit our web pages and contact me by clicking on my name. An email will come directly to me. Our doors here at Smokiam (2 doors down from the SL Library) open at 8:00 a.m. and we are here until 3:30 p.m.  Please feel free to call or email anytime. Have a great year.
