ALTERNATIVE HIGH, like all the alternative programs in the Central
Kitsap School District, is designed to provide educational options for
students that are out of sync with the traditional school environment. A
common challenge of our enrollees is a deficiency in credits. However,
kids come to our classrooms for a variety of reasons. The reoccurring
motivation among our students is a desire to get on that path toward
graduation and getting on with a successful life.
To enter our specific school, students must have at least 4.0
credits. Once in, we begin an individual improvement plan to help
students develop their abilities and move toward their educational
goals. For many students those goals include partial attendance at
Olympic High School or West Sound Tech. Here are the steps in the

immunization record with application.

Once entrance criteria is met, the
student is enrolled or placed on a first-come-first-served waiting list
until space is available. There are specified expectations for students

Eastside Alternative High
School embraces the Central Kitsap School District core beliefs that:
Each student can learn and has the right to a challenging,
standards-based education that will help her/him discover the joy of
learning and reach her/his full potential. That powerful teaching and
learning is the most important factor for student achievement. A
diverse, well-supported, student-centered, qualified staff dedicated to
life-long learning is critical. In addition, a safe, stimulating, and
positive learning environment is essential for student achievement. And
finally, educating our students is a shared responsibility among
parents, staff, students, and community -- clear, continuous
communication is essential.
