Weve moved a lot and I am so happy we landed here! Highland is a great school district and they have put more effort into teaching my kids than any other school they have attended! My kids attend both the elementary school and middle school and they both love it!

Good experiences with students and teachers at the school, however, Highland lacks some cultural elements that would, in my opinion, tend to keep more of their students attracted to the idea of high school in general.
I've gone to highland for my entire educational career. I will be graduating next year and feel very unprepared for what awaits for me at college. Highland often teaches to the students who don't learn as fast, so I was never pushed. Also every teacher that had every done something good for me and my fellow student body either gets fired or they resign because Highland cannot keep good teachers. Overall I don't regret going here because of the friends I've made but I am so glad my little sisters got out of this school when they did.
