Students that may not qualify for certain programs, yet still need help, may qualify for the JHS SAIL Program. SAIL stand for "Students Achieving in Life" and is an alternative educational program that provides academic support for these students. The primary purpose of SAIL is to help these students learn to identify and deal with problems and to change behavior that may prevent educational success. Every student has the right to a free and appropriate education, and given the proper materials, techniques and environment, all students can learn and succeed.
