Highland School District Reviews

Highland High School is not a bad school. Staff members are typically respectful and helpful. You can tell that the teachers care about the well-being and success of their students. We have plenty of student activities available including clubs and organizations, as well as spirit week and other fun events. We enjoy sports, but we don't often win very much. I feel as though we should focus on funding other programs at the school too, rather than our main focus being our mediocre sports. The students themselves change with every generation but a trend commonly seen would be the negative vibe you get from most of them. I wish that staff members would find a way to create a more enjoyable, positive environment for students and raise school spirit.

This school is makes up unnecessary rules, and has a tendency to try to bully kids into being a certain way. The way they discipline kids has a hard pull to who the kid is. If the kid is someone big in the community or related to anyone in school then they don't treat them in the same way. There was many times that the administrations would pick favorites over facts. If you are related to someone you would be good to go but if not you will not enjoy it. There are a few teachers I have meet that truly do care but as the years have went they moved or retried. At this school the good doesn't out weigh the bad.
It is a great school, there are a few sports to play and many fun clubs and classes to take. The lunches are okay, as are the teachers. There are a few great ones that go beyond for the students.
