Highland High School Reviews
Highland High School has an incredibly dedicated group of teachers! I have had three children who've graduated or soon to graduate from HHS. During their 4 years of high school they were able to take challenging courses including honors, AP and dual enrollment courses. The majority of teachers in these classes genuinely care about their students and I can say that my children have had a great education. The performing arts department has also been incredible! All 3 of my kids took orchestra all 4 years and the teachers are so amazing!
High school was extremely fun! First, I attended every Friday night football game because I loved being a part of the action in the bleachers and cheering on the players. Highland students have a lot of school spirit by always supporting their fellow peers on the field. Yet, my most vivid memories that made high school a blast were the dances: Homecoming, Winter Formal, and Prom. I absolutely loved the dances and admired all the hard work that the student council put towards them with decorating, hiring a DJ, and making sure the night was memorable for all students attending the school. Regarding academics, the teachers invested tremendous amounts of time into their students to ensure they understood the lessons and even went further to develop a personal connection to them which helped me achieve great success with my 4.0 GPA all four years. I am forever grateful for being a hawk at Highland High School and will cherish all the enjoyable times for the rest of my life.
Highland High School is the most spirited school I've had the privy of knowing. I am proud to be an alumni of HHS for this reason. Even if we lost a game or event, the spirit was contagious; our blood drives even brought out our school pride. The teachers, faculty and students came together for events, which I feel is not a common bond in high schools. Beyond school spirit, being prepared for college was another highlight. Having support and resources available was a huge blessing. There are programs (such as AVID) and so many dual-credit courses available for students to take advantage of. I was able to complete more than a semester's worth of credits for college through these courses and the support of multiple teachers. Go Hawks!
