Colorado High School Charter

Posted On: July 26, 2007

Colorado High School Charter (CHSC) will teach BrainWise in its foundations class — required of all students — and reinforce it in all the other classrooms.  The presentation by Dr. Barry on the BrainWise Program was well-received by the staff, and all are on board to integrate the 10 Wise Ways into the school’s culture.

CHSC is an alternative school for high risk students  and 90% of the first cohort of students graduated.  15% of students graduated from their home high schools.

See www.chsc.org for more information on the school.
