Albany - - A South Georgia school administrator says there's learning taking place at his school, even though he feels many believe it's just a place for troubled students to congregate.
The South Georgia Regional Achievement Center in Albany takes students of all grade levels who need counseling or a boost to finish their schooling.
The school's principal says many people have the wrong idea about the school since it has changed its name several times.
"The name has changed twice. It was once known in the community as the alternative school and then it was once known as the phoenix school and we know the meaning of those terms and now I think it has a beautiful name, the south ga regional achievement center. The focus now is to have an array of programs here," says Dr. John Davis.
The school houses 6 programs...including the STAR program, which uses military tactics to teach discipline. The PHOENIX program is there for students who have had trouble in the legal system.
There are also programs for students who just need help catching up to their normal grade level or who need counseling before returning back to their regular schools.
