The Forbush School at Glyndon - Hannah More Campus is a year round program that provides programming for students in grades 9 through 12 with high functioning autism, emotional disabilities, or specific learning disabilities. The high school is a co-educational program designed to maximize each student's ability to obtain his or her high school diploma in a nurturing and supportive environment. We offer a traditional high school program using the Baltimore County Public Schools Curriculum. The high school completer pathways include Spanish, auto maintenance/repair, culinary arts, computer technology, and horticulture/landscaping. In addition to work-based learning opportunities in these areas, we offer training and hands-on experience in an office support setting (e.g. copying, collating, laminating projects). These programs are designed to help students transition into the community and lead successful lives as they prepare to enter college or the work force.
