Comprehensive Education and Behavioral Health Programs
The Pinnacle Schools provide middle and high school students with accredited education and comprehensive behavioral health services. In many cases, students may work at their own pace with close supervision and assistance from highly qualified and State Certified teachers. Teachers are supported by trained Behavior Interventionists and together they provide a safe, nurturing learning environment for students. Upon enrollment, each student is evaluated and assessed to determine the student's strengths, remediation and/or behavioral health care needs. Pinnacle leaders work closely with students, parents, therapists and other school counselors to design a program that supports the specific needs of each student whether they are gifted or struggling in school or home. Therapeutic support is provided Pinnacle by licensed, certified and master's level mental health professionals.
Effects of Bullying in School
Does your child develop a sudden illness when it is time to leave for school? Are grades declining for no apparent reason? Does your child exhibit signs of social withdrawal, anxiety or depression? These are just a few signs of bullying. Research shows that bullying is linked to a child’s academic achievement, learning and development.
