Gateway to Fun and Learning

On September 10, students from High Road School of Wright City were able to spend their day enjoying a trip to the Saint Louis Gateway Arch. Any student who was on Green Level and above spent the morning hanging out on the outside of the Arch, walking along the riverfront, and exploring the museum that is below the arch. “Going to the arch itself was my favorite part. Seeing the new look of the inside was fun because I haven’t been there since they did it,” said one student from the Academic 3 classroom. As an additional bonus, the [...]

Blizzards in August

During the last week of August, some of High Road students got to enjoy a Dairy Queen Blizzard of their choice while they worked. The expectation was that any student who was able to maintain their behavior level at green by that afternoon got to enjoy this frosty treat! It was a very popular goal to work towards that left many students (and staff members) with smiles. Visit our website to learn more about High Road School

Trip to the St. Louis Zoo

This month, students participating in Extended School Year enjoyed going on a field trip to the St. Louis Zoo.

May Events and Activities

We wrapped up the end of the school year with a flurry of activities! Our second annual Family BBQ had a great turnout followed by a graduation party for our departing seniors. The students made their own tie-dye shirts for special events at school and put the skills they learned in our new Wellness Program to good use during an obstacle course competition. Field Day was a huge hit (for staff and students alike!), especially the water balloon free-for-all. We hope our students enjoy their break and come back ready to learn during the Extended School Year! If you [...]
