Our Safe Schools help students take ownership of their behavior, turn their lives around and get back on the path to graduation.
West40 operates Safe Schools for kids who are up against difficult circumstances. We know that most of these are out of their control, and we believe that if we change these circumstances—offering safety, encouragement and structure in a new environment—we can change the ending to each kid’s story.
– David, former Safe Schools student
Our Safe Schools teach each student to set goals, improve their behavior and take responsibility for their own future.
By creating a safe, welcoming atmosphere, we get parents involved in their students’ lives in a way that some never have before.
West40 Safe Schools help students improve academically, setting them up for an eventual return to their home middle school or high school.
