Many students who enroll in Sanchez Charter School face obstacles to success in school and life – challenges that put them at risk of dropping out. “At risk” means more than just having low family income. At-risk can mean that a student has failed two or more classes, is pregnant or parenting, has been expelled, has limited English-language skills, is currently on parole or probation, or faces other barriers that prevent them from progressing in school.
Our long experience in working with at-risk students has given us a deep understanding and a high degree of skill in helping students overcome those obstacles. At Sanchez, students find intensive academic supports and wraparound social services that help them stay in school, catch up and turn their lives around.
Students and their families can participate in individual and group counseling, an after-school program, parent groups, child care for teen parents, internships and other learning experiences that inspire and empower them to pursue their potential and achieve success.
