Middle Level Alternative Program(MLAP)
The purpose of MLAP is to create a positive educational experience for students and families. The long term goal for all of our students is to increase educational success for all of our students and to provide a smooth transition to mainstream. In order for all students to find success in our program, students and parents must be invested in our program. This program works with students in Grades 5 - 8.
