The students who attend the Travis Education Center are aware of what outsiders might think of them, that the center is a place where students end up, not where they go purposefully.
The alternative high school acquires students for a variety of reasons.
It might even be that there is a different reason each of the roughly 75-person student body arrived at the center. While it might also be true that many of the students “ended up” at Travis Education Center, or that this is the perception for many people, the faculty and staff at the center will not allow anyone to look upon their students as castaways.
