Ensuring a high quality educational experience and skills relevant to the 21st century
Principal Dale Stafslien and the staff welcome you to the
Sparta Area Independent Learning School where all students are
afforded an opportunity to learn.
School serves high school age students who are at-risk for not
graduating, and those ages 18-20 who did not graduate with their
peers due to lack of sufficient credits.
SAILS opened in
1995 to provide an alternative educational environment for students
who were not experiencing success in the traditional setting and
were behind in credits. A low student-to-teacher ratio,
individualized instruction and assessment, and a high level of
social support create an atmosphere where typically unsuccessful
students feel safe enough to take the risks that true learning
requires. SAILS is a learning community in which students can be
honest about their abilities and past efforts, and have the
necessary time, support, and resources to learn skills that many of
their same-age peers learned years earlier.
A caring staff,
alternative graduation requirements, up-to-date technology, and
resources make SAILS a model in at-risk programming.
