Chelsey Smith – Administrative Assistant
It is my pleasure to be a part of the new High Road program with Mt Healthy schools as the Administrative Assistant. Excited to be a part of such a supporting team. I enjoy motivating and encouraging people to become their best. I believe that there is no limit to any form of success. I spend most of my free time with my son. A few other hobbies of mine would be reading, listening to music, shopping and traveling.
The academic, social-emotional, and behavioral needs of each student are met through low staff-to-student ratio, individualized and small-group teaching approaches, counseling services, and a comprehensive behavior management system. Our staff works in unison with district special education and general education teachers to ensure that students receive the maximum benefit.
We measure success in a variety of ways, including successful transition back to the District’s least restrictive environment, progress on IEP goals, academic achievement as measured by formal assessments, and most importantly, student reports of learning to love school again.
Students are referred by Mt. Healthy School District to attend the High Road School in-district classroom program. They face disabilities in a variety of areas but are primarily eligible due to an emotional disability which may be impacting their ability to succeed in a District’s less restrictive environment.
We are proud to employee certified special education teachers and a licensed school social worker/counselor. We work closely with the District to coordinate the provision of related-services, including Speech and Occupational Therapy.
