Luke C. Moore High School Sets the Standard
Three years ago, Makia Baugh had practically given up on school. She rarely attended classes, and when she did, her attention span proved to be next to nothing and she had absolutely no interest in learning.
The entire time she was enrolled at Cardozo Senior High School in Northwest, her nonchalant attitude toward education eventually led to other issues, and brought a screeching halt to her childhood.
But then one day, Baugh experienced an epiphany.
"I wanted to change my life," said Baugh, 20. "I realized that because I had a child, I had to do something to better her life and mine."
She soon learned about Luke C. Moore (LCM) High School in Northeast, which affords truant and other troubled youth an alternative solution to completing their high school education and earning a diploma. She liked what LCM had to offer, especially its Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps program or JROTC – which Baugh said she felt might help her to become more disciplined.
