This unique learning environment is provided for non-special education students in grades 10 through 12 who are not currently accumulating academic credit at the expected rate and who wish to earn a District 214 diploma. Vanguard School is a pioneering effort that provides a non traditional education where a team of teachers implements new instructional techniques, uses innovative curriculum, and utilizes community resources to meet the academic needs and career aspirations of students. Students spend half of their school day providing service in the community and half the school day in academic endeavors. Referrals are made through Student Services screening teams at each high school. Admission is the result of collaboration among school representatives, Vanguard staff, the student, and his/her parent(s) or guardian(s).
