If you can’t read and you haven’t been exposed, you can’t dream. These kids don’t dream, they have nightmares. Everything they know is negative.”
– Judge Jimmie Edwards, Founder of the Bluett School
The Bluett School in St. Louis, MO is an innovative concepts academy–a school of last resort. Kids who have been thrown out of school for fighting, drugs, bad behavior, suspension, or running away are sent here. In addition to a small average class size, the students participate in after school activities such as chess, dog obedience training, dance, and orchestra. This adds another dimension to the education received by these kids, reaching beyond the standard school subjects.
