"A.I." Contestant's "At-Risk" Past

3/5/2008 4:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Danny Noriega"American Idol" wannabe Danny Noriega has issues.

We found out Danny attended Sierra (Continuation) High School in Azusa, Calif., a school dedicated to "at-risk" kids.

The crowd at the school? According to Sierra High's website, students are "significantly behind in credits -- and at risk of not graduating -- who want a second chance to succeed and achieve a high school diploma."

Danny graduated last year, but school sources tell us he had a rough time, working through his "gothic" phase -- that's when Danny boy went on his Christmas video rampage. One source says Danny had "multiple issues" which landed him at the school.

I'm just gonna say this...I'm sorry that Danny is human and has a past. Let's just shoot him now since he isn't perfect. MY GOSH PEOPLE, just give him a break! He might have had his phases but who hasn't?? All that matters is now he is an amazing person. I am hating TMZ more and more!

sorry I graduated from a contiuation school, I see nothing wrong with that, some kids move around alot with military families and have to be bounced school to school and in order to keep up you have to go to continuation school, whatever his situation is I applaud him, he could be another loser and just drop out, at 16 in cali you legally can! so Keep up the work and get that diploma.
