HRS at Promise Academy Staff, 2015–2016.

The High Road School at Promise Academy is a contracted program for Somerset County students who are in need of intense academic and behavioral support. Students receive a highly structured educational and behavioral program based on the assessment of each student’s particular needs and strengths. These services are provided within elementary and middle/high school therapeutic classroom settings. The program focuses on decreasing behaviors that interfere with learning while accelerating student academic performance to a level necessary to reach achievement standards aligned with the Maryland College and Career-Ready Standards. In addition to primarily serving students with specific emotional disabilities (ED), the High Road School program also provides services for students who have been diagnosed with an intellectual disability (ID), multiple disabilities (MD), or other health impairments (OHI).

Located within the Marion Sarah Peyton School and run in collaboration with the Promise Academy, the High Road School program shares the public school’s curriculum, materials, equipment, and amenities while still providing our students the targeted, research-based interventions that have been customized to advance the reading, writing, and math skills of challenged students, along with their ability to better understand and master content.

Ultimately, High Road is committed to building the confidence and competence of every one of our students by delivering consistent and structured instruction in deficit areas and by teaching them how to become independent learners in the general education setting. At the High Road School at Promise Academy, leading students to success is our steadfast focus and mission.
