Welcome Moline High School ASPIRE Program!

The newly renovated A-wing at Moline High School welcomes the ASPIRE program! Students helped cut the ribbon at the dedication ceremony on August 23, 2022. An open house followed the ceremony.

ASPIRE stands for Alternative Student Programs for Individualized and Remote Education. The space not only enables the program to move from the Coolidge Campus but also gives its students greater access to equitable facilities, courses, and extracurricular offerings, as well as greater access to advising and counseling services and mental health supports. 
 
More than 19,000 square feet in renovations transform former classrooms and athletic spaces into six classrooms, a cafeteria/multipurpose space, a locker room, and more. Additionally, the School Health Link, formerly located in Rock Island, provides medical services for students and families, alongside current Moline High School nursing staff.
 
The new classrooms, designed with at-risk students in mind, feature markerboards and small boards, movable furniture, ceiling "light wells" that bring in more natural light, and muted green walls to encourage calm concentration.
