Points of Pride
A Better Choice for Alternative Education
Learning Options High School, part of the award-winning Lake Orion Community Schools, provides students with a unique, highly structured and results-oriented environment for learning that requires dedication and accountability to be successful. There is a reward for hard work. Students who complete the requirements for graduation receive a Lake Orion Community Schools' diploma along with the opportunity to further prepare themselves for a bright future.
A Different Approach to Learning
Since its establishment, Learning Options has embraced a personal approach to alternative high school education, where our educators truly engage students. Unlike some districts, that exclusively use web-based learning tools to teach students, we blend traditional classroom instruction with online learning to meet students' academic needs and desire to feel connected to their school. Such a structure promotes greater accountability and participation, and gives the student a better understanding of the instructional material being taught.
Dedicated and Experienced Educators
The staff of Learning Options High School has highly qualified, dedicated educators with special training working with students who require more individual attention. Each of our educators also has been trained in methods for effectively managing behavior and the learning experience in small classroom settings. This does not mean, however, that expectations are lower. In fact Learning Options teachers challenge students daily to stretch themselves academically as they pursue their diplomas.
Quality Learning Environment
Students enrolled in Learning Options High School attend classes in a dedicated wing of Lake Orion's Community Education Resource Center. The area features updated classrooms with modern instructional technology, inviting common areas, counseling offices, cafeteria, lockers and other amenities that provide a quality-learning environment.
Pride and Respect
Like the entire Lake Orion educational community, a key goal of the Learning Options team is to instill a sense of pride and self-worth in each student. This is fostered in part by the personal connections forged between students and staff. In addition, the unique learning environment helps infuse students with a healthy respect for each other, the instructional team and the community at large.
We are all Dragons!
