Highland Elementary School Reviews
Highland is amazing. The staff is involved and dedicated to the children and standards are set high. I have had three kids attend Highland and not once have we had a "bad" or "mean" teacher. Every one of my children have been encouraged to grow and given the tools to do so. The office staff is courteous and kind to both parents and students. The administrators are involved with school activities and most students feel that they are their friends as well.
