Blackburn Alternative High School


District Mission: Omaha Public Schools prepares all students to excel in college, career, and life. 

District VisionEvery student. Every day. Prepared for success.

School Mission: The mission of Blackburn Alternative Program is to assist students to achieve their highest potential through individual, flexible, and structured educational experiences designed to enhance their academic growth and foster lifelong learning.

Blackburn Alternative Program is in north central Omaha at 2606 Hamilton Street. Blackburn serves Omaha Public Schools (OPS) 9th-12th grade students as recommended or referred by the 7 OPS traditional high schools.

Blackburn follows the guaranteed and viable curriculum as set forth by OPS Curriculum & Instruction Support for secondary education. Both core and elective courses are offered to enable students to meet graduation requirements. Blackburn follows a block schedule that allows students to earn credits on a quarterly basis. Class sizes are generally smaller than in the traditional setting, so students receive the support they need to be successful. Staff members readily teach students skills they need to have an educationally rewarding experience at Blackburn and into the future. Students who accomplish their goals for attendance, behavior, and academic achievement may be recommended for return to the traditional high school setting. Students are, however, eligible to remain and graduate from Blackburn.
