Respectful Individuals who Are Strong and Empowered (RISE)

RISE provides therapy and support to stabilize and improve your child’s academic efforts and classroom behaviors. Your student’s overall level of emotional, behavioral and social functioning is strengthened through the therapy process, promoting a successful school year. The student will meet individually with their therapist, usually weekly. Parents may check in on their student’s progress by contacting the Central Office and leaving a message for their child’s therapist, who will return the call when not in session.
