My experience at Highland has been great! I transitioned to the district in fifth grade from private school. I was welcomed with open arms and everyone helped make my new school experience seamless. As an athlete, Highland’s sports program helped me make friends and get acclimated quickly. The coaches and players embraced me, and I felt part of the team immediately. The sports program and facilities truly rival other outstanding school systems. I feel incredibly honored to be part of this team. I’m also getting a great education. Highland has amazing teachers and staff who pride themselves on putting the student first. Highland is a very safe and welcoming school, and my experience has been incredible. I’ve made friendships I know will last a lifetime. As a student who transferred into the district, I can honestly say that today, my blood runs green and I’m full of pride to be a Highland Hornet.

I had a very good experience at Highland. I started my attendance with Kindergarten and now I am a Senior. My favorite experience at school has been in Orchestra class. I play the cello in our first orchestra called Symphonia. This orchestra you need to be accepted to by the director who is so wonderful and one of the best in the area.
I have enjoyed most of my teachers because they were skillful and entertaining. however, I have had a few teachers that were just lazy. Instead of teaching us the material we had to learn ourselves.
Overall, I have had a good education and have developed many friendships. I know now what I want to do with my life. I want to be a Pediatric Occupational Therapist because I love working with children. I want to make an impact in their lives so they can achieve their fullest potential.
I like the smaller class sizes and getting to know my teachers. Even though we are a public school, I feel the education and resources stack up to any upper level private school in the state of Ohio. The community is tight knit and the school is up to date technology-wise. I feel prepared to enter my freshman year of college. There are plenty of clubs and extra curricular activities to get involved with.

While we are decent in sports I feel like we could improve there. Facilities are geared more towards football, so I would say the other sports need improvement and better funding. The coaching in most of our sports is decent to mediocre to not good at all (depending on the sport). The elementary schools are old but are being replaced.
