Highland has been my home ever since I was four. My favorite thing about this city is being surrounded by my family and friends. Having an amazing group of people like them around has always kept me humble, motivated, and successful. Their never ending love and support pushed me to grow as a person in all aspects in my life, and when I need them most, they are always there to help. I've also met many other great people who have played a significant role in my life, such as teachers, advisors, and co-workers. As many people look down at this city, I still tend to find the beauty of this city within the people and what I already have in front of me.

The Highland area is a well-manicured area with an assurance of safety. Many schools are close by, such as Arroyo Verde Elementary School, Cram Elementary, Beattie Middle school, and Highland Grove. The community itself is very friendly. I have not run into any problems with anyone in the area. The education system is high level and the environment is competent.
Highland has great schools, parks, and shopping areas. The area feels safe and the community is active with a city hall located on the main road (Baseline). The schools are within walking distance of most houses and there are several bus stops located around the city within <1 Mile increments, making transportation without a personal vehicle easy and quick.
