High School (Grades 9-12)
High School at Stanbridge focuses on preparing our students for the transition to adulthood and the opportunities that await beyond their senior year. Stanbridge graduates pursue a broad range of options including full-time or part-time college, technical schools, employment, and transition programs. Our staff works closely with students to define an academic path that is consistent with their postsecondary goals. High School students are encouraged to advocate for their own needs and manage their schedules, materials, and course work independently. Students are coached to incorporate executive function tools, productive work habits, and self-reflection into their daily routine in preparation for the work they will do following graduation from Stanbridge.
We help students and their families identify and work toward achieving their postsecondary goals. All Stanbridge High School students graduate with either a diploma or a certificate, the end documentation is determined early based on needed services, postsecondary supports available, each students' learning profile, and conversations with faculty and family. As we prepare to launch our students into life beyond high school, the core of our program inspires intellectually curious and academically oriented learners in reaching their potential and includes critical executive functioning skills – the ability to plan, initiate, persist through difficulty, and ultimately accomplish projects large and small. The Stanbridge academic course of study is consistent with the State of California mandated requirements for high school graduation. These courses include:
