New School Supporting K-12 Students with Serious and Complex Challenges Opens in Independence
Posted: March 21, 2022
Today, New Story invites the community to its open house to celebrate the opening of its newest New Story Schools campus in Independence, Ohio. New Story Schools is an educational provider for children and young adults with serious and complex behavioral and academic challenges.
Now one of five New Story Schools in Ohio, the newly renovated school building offers students a 22,650 square foot campus with 12 strategically designed classrooms, a playground, and gymnasium. The school has the capacity to serve 120 students grades K-12.
"New Story prides itself in cultivating and maintaining a nurturing learning environment where students not only thrive, but also where they can experience traditional school experiences," said Berry Thompson, Head of the New Story Schools, Independence. "It has been a wonderful journey watching this school being built from the ground up, and I look forward to sharing how our learning environment will meet the unique needs of each student trusted in our care by providing the academic and therapeutic support they need to succeed."
New Story Schools employs a data-driven, multi-tiered system of support to accelerate student learning and promote social-emotional and behavioral success. New Story Schools currently serves students throughout Ohio, including Athens, Columbus, Independence, Lancaster, and Sandusky.
"Berry and the team of highly qualified teachers, therapists, and support staff are amongst the best in Ohio," said Mario Basora, Senior Vice President of Operations for New Story, Ohio. "Our goal is that students are with us as long as they need our specialized support. While some students will stay with us throughout their educational experience, most will transition back to their home school with the skills they learned here at New Story Schools. We are honored to make a positive impact in the lives of our students and their families."
