Caldwell Alternative Middle & High School

The Caldwell Alternative Middle and High School program serves students with emotional, social and learning challenges by providing a safe, respectful and supportive environment. Classrooms are small (5-8 students with a teacher and a para-professional) and counseling services (1:1 and group) are available on a weekly and as needed basis. Students are provided with opportunities for career exploration, management of the school store, and participate in woodshop and other elective classes. A point/level system provides the foundation for behavior management.

Students needing a 45 day evaluation are accepted on a space available basis. Intake, psychological testing and discharge planning are included as part of the 45 day program.
