I am proud to be a Dragon Trainer at The Bijou School, which offers opportunities for students who need to follow a different path to achieve their educational goals. I am greatly indebted to this school as a parent because my oldest son, who had gone wayward his senior year and dropped out. When he finally figured out he really needed to get an education, The Bijou School was a perfect fit for him. The staff rallied around him and guided him on a path to recover his credits and find a new purpose in education and learning. The staff's hard work and dedication to his achievement so impressed him that for the first time, he confided in me that he was actually enjoying what he was learning. Upon graduation, he joined the military and within three years, became one of the youngest E-5's in the army. He now owns and operates his own custom home building/remodeling business and specializes in creating unique designs and genuine customer service. All of this was made possible by what The Bijou School has to offer. For me to be able to finish my career at this school is truly a blessing.
