In the year and a half before coming to Oakland, Lauren had been enrolled at three high schools and the Internet Academy.  Attendance had been an issue for her and she had only earned 4 credits during that time.

Today Lauren is the picture of success.  She had earned 3.5 credits the first semester of the year and is on track to finish the year strong.  Lauren has even joined ASB.  CIS has supported her transition here with clothing resources and enrichment opportunities that have strengthened her bond with school.
