For many students, regular high school isn't structured enough for them to succeed. Many times, this pushes them to drop out and just give up. But one school in Dayton is making sure that doesn't happen.
High school senior Rachel Osborne wants to study business. And Maurice Brown is hoping to break into the music industry.
Two extremely motivated students and also very honest when they talk to reporter Hilary Zalla about their first attempt at high school.
Like too many students Maurice and Rachel couldn't succeed in a regular high school. They say it wasn't structured enough and they didn't feel motivated.
Now they are attending Dayton Business Tech High School, an award-winning community sponsored school serving students who can't thrive in a typical high school. Students are immersed in a structured environment with high discipline and extremely focused learning. A true savior for students who otherwise might have given up on school.
The school is also first of its kind in the region to offer college credit. Students are able to have a second chance at getting their high school diploma, a priceless opportunity for many.
