High Road School of Philadelphia – Germantown

The High Road School of Philadelphia – Germantown serves students with academic, behavioral, and social-emotional needs from grades 6 – 12.

We believe students reach their highest potential in safe and structured environments that afford them a strong sense of security, a positive attitude toward learning, and incentives for appropriate behavior.

By focusing on key areas — academics, behavior modifications, support services, and transition/life-planning services — we meet the individual needs of all students. Through collaboration with a student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) team, we can choose the most appropriate learning model based on a student’s present levels of performance, social capabilities, motor coordination, and ability to learn in a group setting.

Some of the emotional and behavioral issues, as well as other disabilities, we embrace in our schools include:

  • Emotional Disability/Disturbance
  • Specific Learning Disability
  • Intellectual Disability
  • Other Health Impairment
