10 Parent Reviews for Challenger Secondary School

It offers great alternatives for students who can not attend a traditional high school. 90% of the staff here is wonderful including, Ms. Love (secretary), Ms. ...  Read more

I am a proud graduate of Challenger school class of 1993. At this school there were no peer pressure or pressure at all from staff, academics or anything.

I beleive that Challenger gets the short end of the deal when it comes to being reconized within the district. It has been put on the bottom for too many years, and it's time that they get the respect that the other schools get. GO CHALLENGER!

Compared to the rest of the Bethel school district, it would be difficult to have enough praise for this alternative school. My son went from nearly dropping out, to an honors student. WASL issues? The answers are obvious. If your youngster is having school issues, please check out the alternative school ...  Read more

This is a great school to be going to if you are planning to get into running start. Get good grades, do 4 hours of community service a month, and keep in touch with your advisor and not only is your college paid for, but you get paid up to $40 a month!

I think that Challenger Secondary High School is one of the best high schools that any parent of a student could feel safe and do all there work at there own pace and not be on a schedule that the normal schools have. You can just work on what you need to during the day and that the teachers are willing ...  Read more
