Year Round Alternative School's school year is divided into four sections called quads. Quad 1, 2, 3, 4, starts in August, November, February, and May, respectively. Each quad lasts for nine weeks with a two week break in between (the school year still has winter break in December/January). Enrolled students attend two courses per quad for a total of eight potential credits earned in one school year. The school year starts some time in August and ends some time in July (exact dates vary depending on the school year). Classes start at 10:00AM and run to 2:50PM.
Year Round Alternative School is home to many supportive adults. With two full time classroom teachers, a curriculum leader, office administrator, child and youth counsellor, safety monitor, and itinerant special education teacher, students have access to a wide array of supports and resources.
