Highland Junior High is a well-organized school with strong curricula, phenomenal music and arts programs, and talented sports teams. However, a lack of diversity fosters a hostile environment for many LGBTQ+ and minority children that could be detrimental to their development. Available safe spaces and diversity awareness programs could help mitigate this issue and improve the school immensely.

The teachers at Highland Junior High School are phenomenal! Additionally, the elective courses offered here are fun and interesting. Overall, this is an amazing school.
Highland Junior High school was just as I expect every Junior High to be. There are tons of after school activities available to the students, though there seems to be a lack of school spirit.
