l You have on site assistance if and when you need help.

l You have a wide range of courses to select from and could take additional classes for college credit.

l Class blocks are daily from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. and will follow the regular school calendar.

l You will attend classes away from the normal high school setting.

Opportunity School is located at 330 W. Eighth Street (RCS Administration Building), Rushville.
