John C. Schiffer Collaborative School
John C. Schiffer Collaborative School is SCSD2’s high-school-level alternative educational program, and exists to provide educational opportunities for students for whom a non-traditional school setting may be more appropriate. There are many reasons why a student may need an alternative environment, and as such we seek to meet the individual needs of every student and incorporate a culture that makes intellectual learning and character development of equal importance.
Students at Schiffer master the same academic standards as their peers at Sheridan High School; however, our non-traditional focus allows students to work toward mastery using a variety of learning strategies focused on individual learning styles, varied assessments and a flexible pace. Through supportive, individually-focused academic programs and strong parental involvement, our students achieve academic success.
