Highland High School is an average high school - nothing more, nothing less. We have little to no diversity and school culture. Our school spirit is very lacking due to the negative attitude of the students. As a small sized school everyone knows everyone else business so there is constant gossip and drama. It is possible to avoid this, but it takes quite some effort. On the bright side we have teachers who care and most teach well, a handful of clubs to participate in, and the setting feels pretty safe. Administration at Highland does try to get students involved and raise school spirit - the students just don't want to make an effort. I hope to see the attitude of students change within the next few years.

Hello! I have been at Highland High School for 12 schools now. Of course as any other school there are numerous positives and negatives. Some positives about going to HHS would include all the extra-curricular activities we offer, as well the excellent skill level of all our sports teams. A negative about HHS would be that there is a great amount of fighting and drama that takes place there. Overall, you have spectacular teachers, decent food, and so many classes to choose from.
Highland high school has given me the best foundation I could have for preparing for my future. They have not only taught me everything I needed to know for my classes, but have also given me life skills that have better equipped me for my college career! I'm very blessed to have attended Highland high. Through the years any problems they may have arose they have work diligently to fix, making each year better than the last! I couldn't change a thing!
