ALBION, ME – DECEMBER 8: Mary Hodges of Albion, left, enrolled her granddaughter Tanika Hodges into the Maine Academy of Natural Sciences in Hinckley because Tanika was having difficulty at Lawrence High School. Tanika has an attachment disorder and liked the smaller classes and other students at the charter school. “It felt like family pretty much to me,” she said. Tanika graduated from the charter school this past August. She says that if she had stayed at Lawrence High School, she probably would have dropped out. (Photo by Gregory Rec/Staff Photographer)
