Try to find out as much as you can about the different schools and their programs.
Ask these questions:
- Does the school have special programs for pregnant teens and teen parents?
- Can I have a flexible schedule?
- What classes are available?
- What degrees are offered?
- Does the school have the classes I need to get into college later?
- Can I participate in sports or other after-school activities?
- Can I change schools if one does not work out?
It’s a good idea to talk to or email other people you trust about your options, including
- your school counseler
- recent graduates of the schools or programs and
- other teens at the schools.
You can also search the Internet to find out what people say about each school. Try to visit the schools you like most to see whether they are right for you. If you want to go to college, it is important to find out if the school offers the courses you need to get into the college you choose.
You can also find programs to help you regardless of what school you’re in. You can find out more about these programs here.
Note: Remember that if you stay at your school, they must support you. Or, if you choose another school, you can still take courses at your old school if you need to.
