Our Mission


Our Mission



Wells High School is an alternative school established to serve students who are age 16 and older who are seeking to complete the high school portion of their education in a setting with smaller classes, an array of credit recovery opportunities, and a supportive 'family-like' learning environment. Our commitment is to foster an environment where all students are actively engaged in rigorous instruction. Being responsive to the specific needs of our students allows us to support them while continuing to push them to think critically. Utilizing complex instruction, structured thinking processes, collaborative learning models, and culturally and linguistically relevant teaching practices, we cultivate joyful learning for all students.
