Highland Local School District (Medina) Reviews

Highland is a great school- the majority of the teachers enjoy their job and make an effort to help out students. However, there needs to be a greater emphasis on mixed teaching styles. For example, teaching traditionally at a whiteboard, working in groups, reading, activities/labs, and videos. Otherwise, the school is about as good as it could be!

I came another school system that didn't have the services for any student with challenges in learning all they wanted to do is fix me. My parent learned of the Highland School system and was impressed to find they had the services and then some. My grades were at best a "C" because I had trouble with comprehension. We moved to the Highland School district when I was in 4th grade. I had a co-teacher in most subjects who guided, encouraged me to excel with no pressure just patience. My grades each improved year and my confidence grew as well. Now I am in my senior year and have a 3.5 +. I can not thank my teachers, counselors and my parents who all believed in me.
Highland High School is a place to learn and develop. So far, my time has been dedicated to sleepless nights and long practices to get the experience I want out of Highland. And due to its brilliant staff to student connections, that experience is easily achievable. Thanks Highland for currently making me work even harder to peruse my dreams and allowing me to grow up in a safe and happy community. I will forever value the time I spend here.
