Highland Park Independent School District Reviews

Highland Park High School is one of the few schools that feels and treats you like a private school while still public. We are EXTREMELY inclusive and although we love sports, all activities are greatly acknowledged and allreciated by all. Teacher typically try to work with you and it's very easy to find a place where you fit in!
Review Highland Park Independent School District
Highland Park offers excellent education to all its students. They offer a great number of AP classes which helped me a lot in college and saving me a lot of time and money. Great institution with great leadership. What I didn't like was the lack of diversity (which can't really be changed lest more diverse people move into the district), and the lack of good Sex-Ed. I understand Texas is not the most liberal when it comes to sex education but I didn't think the Health class I took and the Aim For Success program were all that good when it should have been teaching more of the safety issues, and ways to prevent them, if students are to engage in sex.
Although the high school has very good academics, the elementary schools, and, to a certain extent, the middle school, have very poor academics. The elementary schools don't teach you anything and the middle school doesn't prepare you for the rigorous academics of the high school.
