High Road School of New London: Primary School

The High Road School of New London – Primary provides individualized support within a structured environment for students who have not met with academic or behavioral success in a less restrictive environment. We serve students with a variety of challenges that have prevented them from being successful in accessing their education. Our goal is to help students gain the confidence and competence needed to successfully access their education, and to help students develop the skills necessary to return to a less restrictive environment..

Our Staff

We are proud to employ certified special education teachers, staff trained in crisis intervention, and school social workers.

High Road School of New London – Primary serves a population of young learners in Kindergarten through seventh grade. Our amazing students have a diverse range of strengths and skills as well as special needs. We provide individualized educational programming alongside a comprehension behavior program to meet the unique needs of the students we serve. We utilize iReady adaptive assessments to continuously monitor our students’ growth and performance allowing us to tailor our curricular choices and instructional practices to meet each students’ needs. We incorporate multi-sensory activities across all subjects in order to provide highly engaging academics for students with every learning style. Additionally, all students receive individual sessions and social skills classes from our Licensed Clinical Social Worker. We strive to provide a positive and supportive atmosphere focused on helping students to establish a desire to learn and the tools to reach their true potential.

By focusing on key areas — academics, behavior modifications, support services, and transition / life planning services — we are able to meet the individual needs of all students through these varied approaches to instruction. Through collaboration with a student’s IEP team, we are able to choose the most appropriate learning model based on a given student’s present levels of performance, social capabilities, motor coordination, and ability to learn in a group setting.

Utilizing four specific instructional rotations, students are assessed academically, gain self-regulation skills, learn with district-aligned academic curriculums, and utilize integrated technology.
