Testimony of Alumni/Parents

  • "Thank you for all you and On Track Academy have done for Maya! She just received acceptances from Western and Central. She was accepted at every college she applied to!" 

    - Jennifer Marquis, parent

     "On Track Academy was the motivation and support I needed when I ended up pregnant at 15, and a sophomore in high school. The teachers are AMAZING. The other students were nonjudgmental and supportive. The entire environment was safe and welcoming despite everyone's diverse educational history. They work with you as an individual and will bend over backwards to make sure you're successful in school. OTA's staff pushed me to be the best I could be, and for that I will forever be grateful. On Track will always have a place in my heart and I hope everyone who needs an alternative way of learning takes a hard long look at this place because you won't find more passionate teachers who TRULY care anywhere else. They care about you as a person as much as they do your education. You will not be another name on a paper to them."

    - Billy Davis, class of 2018

    "The amazing staff at On Track completely changed my view on how the education and learning process works. My wonderful teachers were extremely supportive and motivating through my struggle and stress and did everything they could to make sure I was successful by individualizing my education. This school is not only the reason I graduated high school and have been successful in college, but also the reason I will be going into education as a career myself."

    - Gabby Rose, class of 2018

    "I had to pull over to pay attention when my 17-year-old started explaining how transformative her day at OTA (plus Newtech!) was. She’s had such a long hard road as a kid who learns differently. You parents and guardians of kids who’ve been ill-served and/or bullied know how happy, (and relieved!) I feel. We’ve got effective educational advocates, and they’re TEACHERS! When teachers help our kids, well, what an overwhelming gift." 

    - Barbara Grimes, parent

    "I graduated at On Track Academy in 2016; started there my junior year and it was the best decision of my life. I started taking classes at Spokane Falls Community College which wouldn’t have been an option for me if I would have stayed at a traditional high school. The teachers are your best support system and are there for you any time. Couldn’t thank On Track and the staff enough for what they do for their students." 

    - Trista Flodder, class of 2016

    "This school is blessed with the most amazing teachers who stop at nothing to help you and make sure you will succeed. I'm proud to say I'm a graduate of On Track Academy!"

    - Stefini Kenworthy, class of 2014

    "I can't tell you how much we appreciate that Spokane has this program and the passion you and your staff have for the work you're doing."

    - Elise Murphy, parent

    "We are so proud of Nick, and how he is finding his confidence again and his 'happy' again. We are so thankful for On Track Academy, as you gave him a place to finish his high school 'story' in a very caring, kind, and understanding way. We will forever be grateful to On Track Academy for being there for him when he really needed something a little bit different."  

    - Louise Joss, parent
