A different kind of learning takes place at Red Canyon. Kids are embraced for their different learning styles and taught to their specific needs. The school doesn’t run on bells and seven classes a day. It’s a more laid-back environment, but also very disciplined in a non-traditional sense.

And now there’s cosmetology. After a survey of the students, cosmetology came in as a top career choice for the females at Red Canyon. The school has had guest speakers every week. The professionals have discussed color and cutting hair.

“The professionals who have taken the time to come here and teach have been amazing,” teacher Wade Hill said.

“We’re putting a science class together that will teach basic chemistry,” says Hill. “The students will learn about hair, hair structure, cosmetics, skin structure and color,” he adds.

Right now, there are nine girls interested in the courses at Red Canyon, and two or three are seriously considering seeking a career in this area after high school.

Gladitsch has also helped in creating other classes for Red Canyon, including auto trade, mechanic, construction and medicine.
