Highland Lakes School Reviews

Highland Lakes runs like a well oiled machine. They are a very large school catering to K-8, but that means they have a lot to offer. I am a substitute teacher for the district and it took me teach one day at this school for me to put in an application to get my own children moved there for the following school years. The staff are absolutely amazing! You can see how well they all work together and have created a top notch school.

My teachers are always considerate of what other events are going on at the school when they give out homework. Most of them have canceled tests because they know there's a big school dance that weekend, or because there's a big field trip where students wouldn't have the same amount of time as others to do homework or study. As a result of this, the workload is fairly manageable, and if we find we are having trouble completing an assignment in time, the teachers are usually lenient in giving students until the end of the school day to finish it. They also engage with students using online tools, such as Google Classroom, which has been a recent addition to the curriculum. Teachers can post study questions and notes just in case a student was absent that day. Resources are widely available and teachers are generally flexible with their students.
Most of the teachers at my high school have been very friendly and approachable. They try their best to make the lessons fun and enjoyable, even when they're about dry topics. Also, most of my teachers have done their best to understand their students' way of learning. None of them have done lectures, shown educational movies, or have done hands-on lessons for too many days in a row. They like to engage all students without boring them with the same routine every day. My teachers have also made it very clear that students can come to them at any time with questions, and I've always felt confident in asking for help. Overall, I feel that the teachers at my high school genuinely care for all their students and do anything to help us succeed.
