At TLHS, we have succeeded in bringing up the literacy levels of our students, allowing them to meet graduation requirements and earn standard diplomas by the age of 21. We provide one-on-one individualized attention that allows the student to enter adulthood with a high school diploma. Many of these students would have aged out or would not be eligible for traditional secondary programs or would have dropped out of an adult education program for which they were unprepared due to language barriers or academic learning gaps.
TLHS’s mission is to provide motivated students of diverse ability levels a unique secondary school experience with particular emphasis on ESOL education for newcomer students from the Caribbean and other countries as well as for native English speakers of all proficiency levels. Our vision is to help youth acquire the skills they need to be successful in college and/or work and to have a voice in co-creating a world they can believe in. TLHS provides an innovative, standards-based educational choice focusing on high student achievement for all students regardless of onset linguistic ability and prepares them for successful participation in the lives of their communities.
As a result of our program which has been in operation since August 2001, hundreds of young adults who would have been forever counted as high school drop-outs or who would have received certificates of completion rather than diplomas now are attending college and/or holding respectable positions within the Palm Beach County work force.
