Our rigorous, well-rounded, and integrated curriculum encourages and celebrates academic achievement and a love for learning. Teachers challenge every student by matching high academic expectations with individual learning potential.
Whole Child Approach
We focus on the collective physical, social, emotional, creative, and intellectual development of our students. We celebrate and encourage intellectual ability, creativity, problem-solving, critical thinking, health and wellness, character development, and community service.
Our students are prepared to thrive and make positive differences as future leaders in an ever-changing, global world. We focus on instilling the habits of success in every student and cultivate a school environment that encourages acceptance, appreciation, respect, and tolerance for all citizens of our school and global communities. Students have many opportunities to share their ideas and academic achievements through public speaking at weekly school community meetings.
"The Highlands Way" is an integral part of everyday life in the Highlands School community. This positive and proactive approach to teaching students universally- accepted values and ethical behavior has been adopted by Highlands as The Six Pillars of Character. These Pillars have been identified by Michael Josephson, the founder of the Josephson Institute, and they include: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship.
