Glendale High West is a Foothill SELPA regionalized program on the campus of Glendale High School, which serves the Glendale, Burbank, and La Canada Unified School Districts’ secondary schools 9-12th grade. All students attending Glendale High West are eligible for special education. Our program serves students whose social emotional and behavioral functioning impacts his or her ability to access the school curriculum on a comprehensive campus. At Glendale High West, within a small, structured, therapeutic setting, students work toward achieving the academic, social, and emotional goals set forth in their Individualized Educational Program (IEP).
Glendale High West offers a small classroom setting and provides individual, group, and family counseling and behavioral support for students in the program. The academic curriculum is coherent, relevant, individualized, and aligned with State frameworks in all subject areas. The education staff works closely with each student's district of residence in order to help the student meet specific graduation requirements. All students are encouraged to eventually return to a comprehensive campus with the support of the Glendale High West school staff.
