This is my family’s 1st year in the Highland School District this year. They’re always doing fun things & making learning fun. I like, as a parent, that this district has a no bullying policy and stands by it. My kiddos also tell me that the school lunches are really good! So far, even the slightest issues I’ve had have been resolved. I’m pleasantly surprised with Highland School’s. I have a child in the Primary, Elementary and Middle School. All of my kids seem happy here and have made many new friends! I’m impressed with this district for sure!

My experience at Highland High School was interesting. Highland is a very small town and it was known that word traveled fast. If something happened at the school, everybody in the town knew about it. Sports are very important, which I like. Though there were things I didn't like about Highland. In Highland, politics are a common thing. If your name was known then you were special. It was also common for people to go for the money. Sometimes skill and knowledge didn't matter, it was who you are.
Very safe School. The teachers are well engaged and know all of their students which makes a comfortable learning environment for the kids. They have adequate sporting opportunities and many extracurricular activies.
