Highland Park Reviews

Anyone who lives in Dallas knows that Highland Park is the apex of living in the metroplex. The real estate in the area is highly sought after, with many lots already purchased, or in the process of being purchased and renovated. The schools in HPISD are at a reasonable distance and are filled with dedicated teachers looking to make a lasting impression on their pupils. Just this week, one public school hosted olympic gold medalist Kristi Yamaguchi in a book signing of her newly published, Cara's Kindness. It is a tight-knit community where everyone participates and doesn't hesitate to invite newcomers in.

Most of the people here are nice. Not everyone who lives in Highland Park goes to the public schools in Highland Park ISD. Class sizes are big. Being a current student in the Highland Park School district, my average class size is around 30 kids.
Highland Park is a very safe place. It's parks are well maintained and the shopping at Highland Park Village is great! Highland Park police keep it a very safe neighborhood. It is very pretentious with large homes though.
