The High Road School at Green Holly Elementary is a contracted classroom for St Mary’s County students in need of behavioral stabilization. Students from throughout the school district receive individualized academic and behavioral support services in a highly structured, therapeutic educational setting that offers both full-day and partial-day programming. 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 provides services for students who have been diagnosed with an intellectual disability (ID), multiple disabilities (MD), and other health impairments (OHI).
Since the High Road program is located within Green Holly Elementary School, our students are able to share the public school’s curriculum, materials, equipment, and amenities while still receiving 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, we are committed to building the confidence and competence of every one of our students by providing them with consistent and structured instruction in deficit areas and teaching them how to become independent learners in the general education setting. At the High Road School at Green Holly Elementary School, leading students to success is our steadfast focus and mission.
