It’s OK to Catch Your Teen Doing Something Right
By Jim Fay
"It may come as a surprise for some parents to learn that most teens are suffering from a strong case of self-doubt. In fact, a person’s self-concept is usually lower during the teen years than at any other time in life.
Self-doubt in teen is normal. It usually stems from the enormous social, emotional, physical and hormonal upheaval they are experiencing. Over a period of time, parents can help turn these feelings of self- doubt into healthy feeling of self-worth."
It is the mission of The Lead School to provide an environment which promotes the academic, emotional, social and vocational growth and development of students whose needs are not being met by the traditional school setting.
Who We Serve
Who We Are
The Lead School serves students with a variety of behavioral and social emotional diagnoses including emotional disturbance, autism, specific learning disabilities, sensory disabilities, mental health diagnoses, other health impairments, and traumatic brain injury.
The Lead School is approved by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to serve students age 5 through 21.
The Lead School was founded in 2013 to address the emotional and academic needs of students who struggle in the regular environment. Over the past seven years, we have grown from one student to over sixty students. The Lead School currently contracts with eleven school districts in St. Charles, Lincoln, Warren and Franklin Counties.
