Scarborough High School is fine for the kids that DON'T require additional services, however, for children, like my son who has Asperger Syndrome, the school is a huge disappointment! The accredidation for the school, completed this year, 2004, states that the school caters to its elite, whereas, there are few options for children who require a little more help to prepare them for life after high school. Kids, like my son who has a high IQ but has dificulty in communication and social skills. Writing, in particular, is very difficult. My son, a 10th grader, cannot read or write in cursive. He cannot sign his name on a check. His goal is to attend college. The administration refuses to teach him, even though, I have proof that he has never been taught and has the capacity to learn, independent OT evaluation. Most teachers really do care, but administration binds their hands.
