Our Research is On The Move!

This summer, the Boston Higashi School Research Department teamed up with Dr. Ashley Woodman from the University of Massachusetts Amherst and Dr. Miriam Evans from CAST-Wakefield to examine the effectiveness of our school's jogging program. The findings were very promising and showed that a daily morning jogging routine not only reduced the number of problematic behaviors (e.g., self-injurious behaviors, disruptive behaviors) displayed by our students, but also increased academic performance (e.g., time on task).
