W-W Alternative School Mr. Johnson Director

"A Second Chance for a New Beginning"

Designed by Andrew Johnson


The Washington-Wilkes Alternative School “Crossroads” was developed from a deep concern for students that has previously been unsuccessful for a multitude of reasons. Many of these reasons have not been their fault. Here we think "outside the box" and make every effort to increase employability skills, life-skills, work on behavior modifications. We are a very structured, safe, and positive learning environment. We have very high expectations for our students and constantly tell them that if we expect nothing then that is exactly what we will receive from them. These students rise to the challenge, and in many cases are productive citizens in their home school and

Troubled student

Hello, my name is Andrew Johnson, and I am the director of the WWAS. Like many of the students that attend my school, I struggled in school for most of my teenage years.  Even now I still have trouble with the demand and focus it takes to be an outstanding student.  However, without the help of great teachers and mentors throughout the years I would not be where I am now.  I currently have an undergraduate degree from Maryville College and a two graduate degrees from Lincoln Memorial University. I am also the father of a great little girl Jada, and I am an assistant coach for the Tigers of Washington-Wilkes.  I think that failure happens, but quitting is not an option.  GO TIGERS!!!!

The staff of the WWAS strives to teach to the learning style of the individual student. This is begun upon the arrival of each new student. Each student is tested to determine the level and style of learning needed to complete modules necessary for credits and/or grades for the return to their home school. Resource for parents with troubled teens.
