“Trading Spaces” comes to Hartford

In the fall of 2019, the high school was able to procure a few new rooms for student use. We chose to follow the model of some of the other High Roads in our area and transformed an empty space into what we are calling ‘The Exhilaration Station’. With the help of Mr. Rizzo, Connecticut High Roads Jack of all Trades, Operations Manager Ms. Russo and Director Mrs. McDonald, the vision came to life.

Some use clay to mold the intricate details of the mitochondria, the power house of the cell. Others take a simpler approach, scattering beads across the cell to represent ribosomes, the cell [...]

February Student of the Month – Patrick

What has this student done over the past month to achieve Student of the Month? Before Patrick came to our program he was doing half days without any demands.
