Gallishaw High School

Gallishaw High School is a 220-day school-to-career transition school providing comprehensive educational and therapeutic services for students in grades 9 through 12 with social, emotional, behavioral and academic challenges that have inhibited success in school. All students participate in an initial transition assessment and additional screenings in order to develop an individualized learning schedule. The curriculum is aligned with the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks and supported by multi-modal and modified teaching strategies for all learners. Integrated into the program and its curriculum are experiences that stress connections to “Real Life.” These components include project-based learning, STEAM themes and techniques, remedial assistance and academic support, inclusion opportunities and supports, credit recovery, job development and internships, certificate programs, and partnerships with technical training institutes and colleges. Our mission is to provide equitable opportunities that educate, challenge, and inspire students’ talents and ability levels while preparing each with skills required for adapting and succeeding in an ever-changing society. The four Gallishaw High School classrooms have an average enrollment of 7-10 students and students are supported with a 1:3 staff-to-student ratio.
