Revitalized, Re-Engaged, Empowered
To produce a revitalized and re-engaged student who is empowered and capable.
WELCOME BACK STUDENTS!
A Message From Our Principal:
EACH DAY IS A NEW DAY
Greetings to everyone in the Opportunity Middle and High School Family! Your time at the Opportunity School can be only as meaningful and rewarding as you make it. As your Principal, I am happy to serve the students in Cabarrus County in grades 6-12 in the Alternative Program setting. The Opportunity School vision and guiding principle is “A revitalized and re-engaged student who is empowered and capable.” This vision statement embodies our day to day practices as we work with students with eagerness, enthusiasm, and dedication. We will continue to assist the school district in preparing responsible, productive citizens who have worked to improve their academic, behavioral, and emotional challenges. Our continuum of alternative services reaches out to proactively target the needs of at-risk students with early intervention strategies, character education, highly trained and talented teachers and staff members, and high quality instruction. At The Opportunity School, we address the needs of students with attendance, credit, and behavioral challenges, but we try our best to help students every day in a smaller, structured, nurturing environment that builds their ability to be successful in the traditional school setting and beyond. As your school leader, I am proud to serve the staff and the students in a positive manner and my role here is to facilitate your educational and behavioral goals so that you are able to transition to your home schools for the next semester. We hope to continue to host incentive days such as Dress Down and Intramurals as well as motivational speakers, talent shows and special holiday activities. Have your best year ever and good luck!
Congratulations to Kimberly Mayhew-Spadaccini on becoming the Opportunity School 2019 Teacher of the Year!
