Many Telos students have, at one point or another, refused school. The answer is in the Telos structure. First we determine the “why” behind the refusal and then work through that. Another large component is our school’s relationship with the student. It is a low pressure environment and is built so students see progress and success. This is empowering to most students and begins a new outlooks they enjoy because they understand and can deliver quality work where before it was debilitating.
