Future Basketball Stars

Lead teacher, Ms. Jill, and Teacher Assistant, Ms. Mandy, are two of our veteran staff who work in the High Road program at Denton Elementary School.

After the first BINGO round with staff leading the game, students interested in practicing leadership skills were given the opportunity lead a round of [...]

Project Sharing

Our programs encourage and support all academics and activities that our students are involved in. In some cases, students that complete classes outside of the High Road classroom settings (ie. General education, home and hospital, reading intervention, etc.) often enjoy sharing their completed work and accomplishments with High Road staff and students when they’re in the classroom. At the start of January, Nathan; 9th grade student in High Road at North Caroline High, shared a project that he recently completed outside our classroom in his Health course. During his break from English class, Nathan utilized the classroom touch board [...]
