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 loved the close knit community that Highland had. The teachers were great and always willing to help. The high school was very well kept and nice, I really enjoyed my 11 years at Highland. Some things I can recommend to improve is more involvement with junior and senior students involving college credit plus and preparing for college. The staff did prepare us but I still felt lost a lot of the times and sometimes felt unwelcomed when asking questions. Overall it is a great school district and a great place to begin your academic career.
Having just moved across the country to a new high school, Highland Local School District was the most welcoming and inviting place to be a part of. Everyone from the students, to the staff, to my counselors made my experience of switching schools much easier than I anticipated. They assisted me in picking out classes that matched up to my academic abilities and interests while meeting the state graduation requirements as well. They helped me get involved in activities that would improve my high school experience by making new friends and meeting new people. One thing I would hope to see in the future for this district is more diversity within the student body. With more ethnic groups present, I believe the district will thrive much more than it already does.
