The school is very family based ! We are all understanding of each other’s situation. Teachers and students understand we are no better than the other. The school hype is very hype! We also had a school TV Show called Undercover High on A and E
I like the teachers at highland park they never failed to keep a smile on my face even through a bad day. At the beginning of my high school life I was very apprehensive of going to Highland park. I gave it a chance though and later I would find out that this school would help me grow and become a stronger individual. I have talked to multiple Friends and colleges of mine they have all agreed that Highland Park High school, was one of the best schools that shaped them as a individuals.
