West End School – The West End School is a free, private, college prep elementary and middle school for at-risk young men. The school exists because of the growing need for alternative forms of education, particularly for the young men in the Louisville community. Boys especially are at higher risk for almost every index of failure: academic, achievement, truancy, dropout rates, school suspensions and expulsions, delinquency, and incarceration. The West End School strives to address these issues by creating a culture of high expectations through rigorous academic and personal standards. West End School graduates have been offered more than $2 million in scholarships to many of the top high schools in the state. For more information please visit www.westendschool.org.
