My experience at Highland Home School has been alright. I have been here since the 6th grade where I moved from Ohio. There have been a few bumps in the road mainly have been my fault, but I have learned from my mistakes. I enjoy all the classes hear and have no problems with any of the teachers. I also have a decent GPA 3.4. I enjoy my classmates and really do not have a problem with any of the other students in the school. Over my time at Highland their have been many improvements since my time at Highland including Athletics, Academics and alot more

The teachers definitely need to be retrained. They sit on phones all day and don't teach their classes. The new administration has been trying to fix the staff problem, so hopefully that will be fixed soon. The food was decent. Some days it was good, and some days it was terrible. The facilities were always nasty, with dead bugs and rodents. Rats would roam around our classes sometimes, and it was disgusting. Overall, I'd say the school needs a ton of improvement. I would never send my kids to it the way it is right now.
In personal reference, the school and the community that surrounds you is great! There are many opportunities that prepare you for the upcoming world and challenge you to your limits. The teachers are great and always willing to lend a helping hand!
