The Highlands Way

Highlands School has adopted the phrase “The Highlands Way”, which refers to the shared set of core values embraced by all students, staff and faculty as an integral part of their everyday life in the Highlands School community.

The Highlands Way core values are:

  • Integrity
  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Compassion
  • Collaboration

The Highlands Way in Action

Ms. Bates and her 5th grade students integrate the Highlands Way into their wrap-up meetings every day. At the end of the day, the students gather to discuss ways in which they witnessed their peers exhibiting “The Highlands Way”. Whether it’s using active listening, helping a friend when they fall, or not talking while someone is presenting, each day the students share examples then post them on their classroom wall for everyone to see.
