LGBT high school opens in Phoenix…

We love this. A LGBT high school has opened in Phoenix and it is the first of it’s kind in Arizona. 

The school’s research shows students in the LGBTQ community were dropping out of traditional schools and not re-enrolling.

Q High hopes to change that.

“For me personally, it’s about creating a safe space for our youth to feel welcome,” said Q High Program Coordinator Kado Stewart.  “We’re offering an alternative to students who do not feel safe at (traditional) schools.”

During the day Q High operates as an Arizona Virtual Academy school meaning students take science, math, English and other classes online.

But the school’s building also houses a youth center that provides resources specifically for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students such as a class on coming out.
