The SCORE Center, established in 1999, is located inside of the Booker T. Washington Learning Center at 401 Moss Street, Reidsville, North Carolina. We are unique in that we are a K-12 alternative school. Students assigned to the SCORE Center come from across Rockingham County. We use a treatment model to address at risk student needs through small classes, a very structured environment, and an "out-of-the-box" attitude that incorporates non-traditional instructional teaching based on brain-based learning.

There are two programs that serve the needs of our students:
*The Long Term Placement Program
*The RCS Day Treatment
Students are assigned to the Long Term Program either through the Office of the Superintendent following a hearing for violation of state, district, or school rules and policies. Or students may be referred via the Central Office Referral Committee, an interdisciplinary team of education professionals, who, following an initial home-school evaluation, assess if placement is in the student's best interest.
High school students are assigned for a minimum of 90 days. During their assignment, emphasis is placed on maintaining or improving academic standing, addressing the issue that brought them to the SCORE Center, participation in one-on-one and small group sessions, and daily instruction in Character Education. All curriculum is aligned with the North Carolina Standard Course of Study and for students whose reading ability is below grade level, a fulltime reading remediation specialist is available to work with them for 45 minutes daily. Students in grades six through eight are assigned for a minimum of 45 daysd and receive instruction via traditional team-teaching methods. High school students are assigned to use the APEX Learning system, an Internet-based learning program that delivers curriculum for grades nine through 12.
