*Roadrunner School in Paradise Valley (3540 E. Cholla) is a school whose students are severely emotionally disabled or learning disabled. These conditions stem from various physical or environmental causes, and the students are placed at Roadrunner when no other option is reasonable for their schooling.

This small school (around 140 in K-12) has been neglected in the sense that it struggles constantly for adequate funding. Most of Roadrunner’s funds go to meet federal requirements for services such as staff, aides, or intervention specialists. The school depends heavily on the generosity of outside benefactors to provide programs normally funded by well-supported PTO organizations.

Many of Roadrunner’s students come from poor or homeless families who struggle from day to day. Other students live in group homes or are in foster care. In many cases, there is a lack of parenting skills and role models. Roadrunner School strives to fill these voids in the students’ lives, and Cheyenne NJHS is reaching out to help fill that need. Please help NJHS reach out to provide for “sister” Roadrunner school.
