Paraprofessional

Granite Hill School

 

The Granite Hill School has been serving youth since 1996 and has become well known for its ability to help struggling learners experience academic, social and vocational success. Our instructional methods are rooted in the philosophy of John Dewey and include differentiated instruction, participatory learning, and experiential learning.

The Granite Hill School mentors students by teaching problem solving, social skills development, and character education and provides meaningful transitional services through its campus-based and community-based vocational programs.

Together, these techniques at GHS have proven to be effective in nourishing the student’s sense of self and helping that student to become a knowledgeable, competent and responsible adult.


The Paraprofessional  is a tutor, teacher, and classroom aide. Their role is to support the program in all ways possible, primarily by assisting others in the discharge of their duties, but also by taking primary charge of students during certain times and activities. Often, the Paraprofessional will be the primary individual responsible for crisis intervention, transportation, and supervision of the students, particularly during less-structured times.
