Nathaniel S. Collie Senior High School serves students who struggle in traditional schools or need more time to graduate.

The Sacramento County (Calif.) Department of Education has opened an alternative school in Sacramento for middle and high school students.

Nathaniel S. Collie Senior High School is a 12,000-square-foot campus for middle school and young adults who struggle in traditional schools or need more time to graduate.

Before the new campus was built, students were attending class in the basement of transportation department facility in the Elk Grove (Calif.) school district, reports California News Times.
