Highlands High School Reviews
I loved how challenged I was everyday, and safe the environment was! I am currently a freshmen in college, and I feel that Highlands prepared me well. I was able to adjust to college, and the work force very easily. The teachers and administration of Highlands High School are very hard working, and caring. The teachers went out of their way to make the classrooms a fun learning environment! They would also go out of their way to stay late after school hours and help students who needed it. Overall, I enjoyed my time at Highlands High School, and there isn't anything I would change! Highlands High School has taught me to have self discipline, a strong work ethic, help others, and to value my resources. I would recommend anyone to send their child to Highlands High School!
Highlands is a school known for Blue Ribbon Excellence. As well as a high ranking football team. But as kids like to say its known for no snow days! But Highlands is a school where I have learned many things at a certain rate that I believe I wouldn't learn at other schools. This school is meant for people to do well. It's meant for kids to thrive and go off to college with high hopes. I highly encourage kids to attend Highlands. I know when I'm older I will for sure send my kids to as great of a school as Highlands.
Highlands offers an excellent educational experience. The teachers go above and beyond to teach and assist students. The school hired a chef and opted out of the national lunch program. The school was recently remodeled using state of the art equipment. The school offers a state of the art fitness center. We have what's called focus time, each day we return to one class for an extra thirty minutes to go over any issue's we may have with that particular subject. This is an excellent opportunity for each student to get the assistance they need.
