High Roads School of Mount Prospect provides academic and therapeutic services for children, adolescents, and young adults, ages 3 through 21, with extraordinary needs.
We believe students reach their highest potential in safe and structured environments that afford them a strong sense of security, a positive attitude toward learning, and incentives for appropriate behavior.
By focusing on key areas — academics, behavior modifications, support services, and transition/life-planning services — we meet the individual needs of all students. Through collaboration with a student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) team, we can choose the most appropriate learning model based on a student’s present levels of performance, social capabilities, motor coordination, and ability to learn in a group setting.
