The school offers a dropout prevention program that aims to reduce the number of students dropping out of school because of educational and economic reasons. The school also offers emotional therapy and has recently opened a new treatment center for approximately 20 students. The center has become a place where all students, not only those who receive therapy, can come to for relaxation, reflection and social interactions.
