angie liranzo (Apr 03 2017 2:34PM) : At 2:25 i heard how the students feel about the schools they attended and why it made them to go to another school or to drop out. more

i stopped at this point of the in the video because its similar to what many young people face in out world today. This connects to a lot of people i know because whenever they’re asked why they came to the school. its mostly the same reasons which are ‘’ my other school was trash’‘, ’’they didn’t care about how i was doing in my classes’’ etc etc. i can also connect this to things that i seen like students leaving class because they don’t get the help that they ask for.

Siree Barry (Apr 05 2017 2:28PM) : Through out the whole video majority of us can relate because we are all at that same predicament , alternative schools aren't bad more

people believe once we in a alternative school we go down one level or so well that’s not the case everyone makes mistakes and messing up in high school was 1 of our mistakes and most of learned from it by getting back on track and actually being able to trust our counselor , teachers and staff so i understands where each of the students are coming from and i am glad i can listen to what the students outcome were

Also i can say the same thing happened to me, well not exactly the same but similar anyways when i was a new student at my old school, everybody was just staring like they’ve never seen a human being before. I was just sitting there feeling mad unconfortable.

Derek Aponte (Jun 05 2017 1:48PM) : i noticed him saying how because of the second chance he was provided with he is achieving something he thought was previously unreachable more

I feel that generally alternative high schools are great because they allow for students to have a second chance even though all they are told is that they will fail in this system. Alternative high schools provide people with a second chance which give people the confidence and help they need.This connects to me because in high school I was extremely close to dropping out but found out about alternative high schools which motivated me again and got me determined to put in the extra amount of work necessary for my diploma

I stopped here because these teens are talking about the similar reasons these teens felt like being a drop out of high school.
It connects to me because most of the time i feel like dropping out or just giving up.
It connects to my old ex friends most of them were just drop outs and started following in the footsteps of others.

I stopped here because i can relate to these teens at the moment and back then in my old school i feel like these teachers have a nasty attitude and i just feel lost.
It connects to many teens including my cousin she feels the same way. She feels like teachers don’t really help and just always have this attitude and favoritism.
I have seen many teens say the same thing so it connects in many ways.

i stopped here because its important to know what are the real reasons why kids are dropped out. this matters because if we know why then we can change it so there isnt so many kids dropping out. the main reason kids are dropping out is because the teachers, they feel that teachers and staff don’t do their job right. this connects to me because i remember feeling that exact same way in my old school

I Decided On My Own To Leave Evander, I Seen I Was Slacking & Realize That All That Fun I Was Having Was Going To Mean NOTHING If I Don’t Graduate. I Didn’t Know About Credit Recovery Schools Into I Reacted Out To My Guidance Counselor On My Own & Asked Her For Help. If It Wasn’t For That Great Move I Would Of Still Been Doing Bad & Not In Pulse High School

Cristal Lebron (Apr 05 2017 2:13PM) : Half of these teens felt like leaving their schools to go to a alternative one because of the way the school system was running. They either wanted to be in a small school or just didn't like the way the school was treating them. more

For example the girl that was pregnant and went to school throughout the 8 months of her pregnancy she didn’t receive no credit after she gave birth because she didn’t the finish the classes but still went for most of the time.
