When Gaelle B. Hadjia-Kamga moved to the United States after spending the first 11 years of her life in Cameroon, Africa, and began attending school in Montgomery County, Md., she felt left out as a sixth grader. Hadjia-Kamga said she felt that way because she did not speak English. “Can you remember the first time you were ever left out because you didn't know anyone or anything? That was the feeling I had all the time,” Hadjia-Kamga said. Hadjia-Kamga not only ended up mastering English, after finishing her required course work at Washington County Evening High School, she was one of two student speakers during the school's 24th annual commencement Thursday night.

Public officials gathered Tuesday afternoon at the new Antietam Academy to celebrate the official opening of a school that Washington County Public Schools superintendent Elizabeth Morgan called "another option" for the county's students. "We need to leave no child behind, and I believe that a student who is very challenged for various reasons, who has difficulty being in a regular classroom in a large number of students, a student who needs personalized education, deserves to have it," Morgan said.

karenh@herald-mail.com For a student who met with counselor Budd Moore recently, completing Washington County's Evening High School program is as much an achievement as finishing a doctorate.

"And, I look forward to seeing her graduate in June," Moore told the Board of Education during a presentation Tuesday about alternative programs.

If it hadn’t been for the new Alternative School in 1977, Joe McPherson said he probably would have ended up in “juvenile hall” until he was 18, or worse. “I was pretty wild,” McPherson said. Instead, McPherson became one of the first students to attend the school that was aimed at catching potential dropouts and eventually getting them back into their home schools. McPherson, who had been expelled from South Hagerstown High, said he found most of the teachers at the Alternative School to be compassionate.

When Antietam Academy's students walk through the doors Wednesday, they'll find themselves in a new school with lots of sunlight and new classrooms built for smaller class sizes. “It provides a great environment to take care of students who need extra care, and having a very upscale, attractive environment that has technology and so forth shows we're looking to take care of our at-risk students and get them to graduation,” said Dave Reeder, director for secondary education. The new 45,000-square-foot building marks the first time Washington County Public Schools has constructed a school specifically for students in what has at times been called the alternative school program since it began in September 1977 in the North Street Community Center.
