I love School Without Walls .... it is challenging, and so to those parents who want their child to do an outstanding job APPLY THEM AT SCHOOL WITHOUT WALLS, when they first start it might be a struggle to adjust but they'll get used to the work .

Work for the sake of work. It's not worth it. Wilson is just as good for self sufficient students.
