I've enjoyed the small community and close relationships with my teachers. I actively participate in our amazing extra-curricular activities such as football, FFA, and Student Council. I feel very safe at Highland and would recommend it to any student looking to go to a small, personal school.

It’s a very contradictory school. Half of the teachers really care and are great about helping me out while the other half of the teachers don’t take the time to actually help or teach me. It’s not that bad of a school but the administration is notorious for picking and choosing favorites, such as the best athletes. I would like the favoritism of “good” athletes to change.
Highland high school was a very hands on school. As a graduate I found the teachers to be more helpful with being leaders and discipline then the upper staff. The curriculum wasn't balanced but weighted, which means if you failed one test but got a perfect score on every thing else you would drop two letter grades. I found this discouraging but got over it and soon and found the teachers willing to go out of there way to help with whatever I needed.
