I think Highland Heights is a wonderful community. It is safe and family friendly. The houses range in affordability and the taxes are fairly decent. I would like to see some more programs or activities at the community center. They have programs for young kids and seniors, nothing for in between. Other than that I enjoy the community!

I've lived in Highland Heights since I was in fifth grade (which isn't saying much, I'm a sophomore in high school now). The city has always been family friendly, though- community days, movies in the park, family nights at the pool, etc. But it is the people here that make the city nice to live in. They are always friendly and easy to talk to. It is a great space if you have kids; a lot of my friends live around me. It is a nice town and a great place to raise children.
Wonderful neighborhood - never felt unsafe, quiet when you walk by the houses but lots of friendly people. Great place to live and close to a very nice park and school too.
