Pasco's New Horizon's High School Featured on PBS Show

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.-- The innovative programs used at Pasco's New Horizons High School will be showcased this week on a national PBS broadcast.

A crew from the "Tavis Smiley Reports" program visited the school last fall.

The show will highlight the school's successful efforts to help kids get back on track.

The school customizes education plans for each student to fit their needs and help them earn a diploma.

New Horizons works closely with the juvenile justice courts to reach students before they drop out and get into more trouble.

"A lot of our students have a lot of obstacles, challenges, when it comes to being successful and graduating for high school. Here at New Horizons we have a lot of programs in place to help students overcome the obstacles that they face," said Seth Johnson, a teacher at New Horizons High School.

New Horizons provides many services from child care to alternative class schedules.

The PBS show will air Tuesday night at 8pm.
