Offered through the New Horizon School, emotional support services provide a structured behaviorally and emotionally enhanced approach to students who demonstrate a pattern of behaviors that may include poor attendance, aggression toward others,  withdrawal, poor peer/adult relationships and who may have court involvement. Some students may have diagnosed emotional disorders that need to be supported through coping strategies and self-monitoring. The primary goal of the program is to teach students the appropriate behaviors necessary to return to their home school program and to function within acceptable behavioral norms of the community.
