Ombudsman helps students succeed. Ombudsman operates over 60 accredited Alternative Schools that serve school districts, parents and students in nine states and 5 Charter Schools in Arizona. Founded in 1975, Ombudsman's Alternative Schools help school districts prevent drop outs by providing an alternative approach to educating high school and middle school students who have difficulty being successful in a traditional school setting. Berea-Midpark High students placed at Ombudsman attend for 3 hours each day, and follow the district's calendar. Berea High places students at the Ombudsman center located at Snow and W. 130th in Brook Park.
