Highland High-school has a good Administrative and Teacher staff. I feel like I can always go to my teachers for anything. The diversity at the school is pretty poor, but that is to be expected when you live out in the country. The one thing I wish was better about the school or would like to see change is classes that really prepare you for being an adult. There isn't a class that teaches students how to budget their money or how to save. I think a class or classes like these will better prepare us students for when we are living on our own.

Great small town school with great academics and athletics. Majority of all students take advanced and AP courses while also participating in a multitude of extracurricular activities. I personally found that a majority of the staff truly care about the success of the student and are willing to put in extra time to help them out. There are a couple teachers that I have encountered that careless and self-centered, they really only care about themselves and don't care about the success and welfare of the student.
I started at the Highland local school district right from the beginning. The faculty and staff were very supportive in anything you needed, school or personal,and they always made sure to make you feel included and important. Some kids would complain about hating it there and talk about how the school was mostly about sports, which is sort of true. Highland is a pretty small school within a small town and like any school like this, this is what happens especially football. But in my opinion I think that it was a very amazing experience attending this school, they made sure that everyone had something that was in their interest, it was just a matter of signing up for those activities.
