To provide students with an educational foundation for life-long success

Principal's Message

In the years since the 1990-91 school year when PASS began, as high school
alternative programs coordinator, I have met many talented and promising
students who have attended PASS, PALS, PACE and I-CARE. For various reasons,
each one of them had been unsuccessful within traditional school settings and
had been considered high-need and at-risk. During the first 21 years of PASS,
1200 students earned their high school diplomas, ranging from 9 the first
year to 94 graduates our top year. These students are productive citizens in
Kingman as well as around the world, and I am proud to say they are teachers,
nurses, business owners, secretaries, servicemen in the Army, Navy and
Marines, as well as continuing students and parents of the next generation.
We see them working everywhere we shop, eat or do business in Kingman!

Our PALS, PACE, and I-CARE students go on to graduate from PASS or KHS. The
PACE program is for students who are significantly behind on credits who need
self-paced classes and extra help on core academics. PALS provides PACE and
PASS students who need more structure an opportunity to focus on academics and
learn skills needed upon return to PASS and PACE. I-CARE students have had problems
with following rules, but most who finish I-CARE go on to succeed at PASS or

You might ask "Why?" We feel that it is because many students need a small,
intimate educational community that nurtures individual social, academic, and
personal growth. PASS, PALS, PACE and I-CARE offer a safe learning
environment for students to build skills and increase personal resiliency.
This increases the likelihood of success in society as young adults. I
appreciate our school staff who work diligently each day to meet student
needs and provide students with support and encouragement to realize their
full potential. With me, they welcome you to PASS, PALS, PACE and I-CARE and
hope you will have a successful and rewarding school year!
