High Road School of Massachusetts

High Road School of Massachusetts is an out-of-district placement for students with a wide range of disabilities who have not found success in the traditional school setting. Our goal is to determine the function behind a student’s behavior, meet their needs in a productive, pro-social way, and provide a rich and rigorous academic education to all students regardless of need. We believe that all of our students can be well rounded, productive members of society and we strive to guide this maturity through real world community opportunities as well as appropriately challenging academics and meaningful clinical support.

Our Students

Students are referred by their school district to attend High Road School and are generally in grades 6–12 (aged 12 to 21), with an optional year Transition Program for High School students. They face disabilities in a variety of areas, including Emotional Disabilities, Autism Spectrum, ADHD, ADD, Learning Disabilities, and more.

Our Staff

We are proud to employ certified special education teachers, all staff trained in crisis intervention, school clinician, speech/language therapy, and occupational therapy, and a school nurse.

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.

Our Transition Program provides in class support once a week to students utilizing real world math skills. In addition, we provide support with managing students as they transition from high school to post-high school with regards to college and career training. Our transition coordinator develops partnerships in line with student interest, including culinary internships at local restaurants, cosmetology internships at local barber shops and hair salons, and landscaping internships with a landscaping business. The transition coordinator facilitates the culinary program within the school where a local chef comes in 4 days a week to teach cooking skills and food safety to students as they prepare the meal for the school.
