Welcome Parents, Guardians and Guests:
Nottingham Community Access & Job Training High School is a school to work program for students with moderate to severe developmental delays. Nottingham CAJT High School is not a typical four year high school. Many of our students stay to their 21st birthday. Our school provides students with functional academic skills and job training to assist them with their ability to live as independently as possible after high school. Classes that are offered include Functional Communication Arts, Functional Math, Daily Living Skills, Food Service, Job Skills Development, Grounds Maintenance, and Custodial Housekeeping. Once students have successfully completed their first four years of classes on campus, they willl go to onsite job training. Jobsites include Wells Fargo and Washington University. We look forward to working with our parents and community partners to be apart of students' high school planning that will ultimately yield success for these young adults.
A big part of the support that we look forward to from our parents and guardians is their voice in their students' Individual Education Plan (IEP). At this level of their education, we require students to participate in their annual IEP develpment and triannual Evaluation meeting to allow them to practice self advocacy. But we need our parents and this also allows the school to communicate specific resources for your child's needs and the exchange of strategies for school and home. Students should know how important their success is to all that are involved in their education.As of 2016, Nottingham has been recognized as a National School of Character. We've partnered with several schools and the community to continue our quest of building positive character in students. There are onsite schoolwide team building activities at least twice a month that allow our students to interact with students from other schools as well as volunteering with our community partners. So we intentionally focus not only on the academics and job training, but also strong positive character to ensure we're graduating well rounded good people in the community.
To better understand our school and the programs we offer, please take the time to explore this site. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
