Highlands School is currently undergoing the strategic planning process for the 2022-2027 school years. We are engaging all members of our community to weigh in on our priorities and plans for the future of our school. We will update the community once the plan has been finalized. In the meantime, you can read more about our previous strategic planning process below.
2015 - 2019 Strategic Plan
Following the engagement of a new head of School in the summer of 2014, the Board of Trustees of Highlands School embarked on a strategic planning process to articulate a long term vision for the school and identify strategic priorities for achieving that vision.
The purpose of this plan is to communicate high level goals and specific objectives that will guide the activities of the Board and administration for the next five years toward achieving its vision for Highlands. The plan also identifies strategies for achieving each goal. As the plan is implemented, Highlands will focus on the outlined strategies and maintain the flexibility needed to capitalize on new opportunities and manage unexpected challenges.
The strategic plan was crafted from the input of our school community. Over two-thirds of our families participated in an on line survey, and the great majority of the participants not only answered the questions but included comments to be considered. The planning process included community conversation sessions with the Parents Auxiliary and the faculty and staff, as well as a four hour visioning session with the Board of Trustees. The plan, as it is presented here, was approved by the Board of Trustees, and enthusiastically accepted by the faculty, staff and Grade Level Parent Representatives.
