How it all began…
In 1999, a group of educators had a vision to create a public charter school designed to meet the individualized learning needs of the Rogue Valley’s youth. They wanted to emphasize career development, a diverse and creative curriculum, special education, professional counseling and employ tools to assist students with social and interpersonal development. Our founders secured a grant and ATI opened its doors on August 28th, 2000 to 18 students and 4 teachers.
The school has since grown significantly. Today, ATI enrolls a maximum of 120 students in grades 9-12, and has graduated hundreds of students. We strive to keep our teachers and our curriculum as uniquely interesting, cutting-edge and captivating as the students we teach.
