A world full of options

Posted

The options are endless.

Options Secondary Program graduated 28 seniors on May 21, and students from Littleton Public Schools' alternative high school program have lots of choices ahead of them.

“A majority of our students really have a plan for where they're going next,” said Options Principal Greg Sumlin. “We gave them an opportunity to understand their strengths and what they can do from here.”

Options primarily caters to students who have a tough time fitting into traditional high schools, Sumlin said, and focuses on building meaningful relationships and trust with kids.

Many students are trauma survivors or struggle with mental health challenges, Sumlin said.

“This is a place where they're noticed and cared for,” Sumlin said. “I tell them: your value doesn't decrease based on someone's inability to see your worth.”
