A Message from the Principal of
The Bijou School,
Kathryn Presnal

Welcome to our webpage and introduction to The Bijou School!

The Bijou School offers students who have not had success in a traditional school setting a different way of learning and completing their high school education. We provide small classes with a friendly, welcoming environment. Our emphasis at Bijou is on student learning. 

Bijou offers a standards-based program that provides a solid foundation upon which students can build promising futures.  We have high expectations for our students and work with each one to create an individual plan for a successful educational experience. This ensures that each student who receives a Bijou diploma is well-prepared to transition into the next phase of their life, regardless of the path they choose.

The Bijou staff is committed to providing the best possible learning and life experiences for all students. We offer supportive relationships that foster respect and understanding between staff and students. We encourage our students to make good academic and personal choices that will maximize their opportunities for success after they graduate from our school.     

Thanks for your interest in The Bijou School! Feel free to call or e-mail me if you have comments or questions. Or, if you would like to visit the school, you are welcome to stop in anytime!
