At Highlands School, we hold our students, faculty, and staff to a higher degree of...
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.
Our students are prepared to thrive and make positive differences as future leaders in an ever-changing 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.
Highlands fosters in its students an appreciation of individual differences, an awareness of and openness toward ideas that differ from their own, and an understanding and appreciation of the backgrounds and experiences of all members of their communities. Everyone is welcome and embraced at Highlands.
We believe in the magic of childhood. While challenging curriculum and academics are at the core of our school, so is the importance of preserving those precious moments of childhood. In today’s world, our children are faced with so many stressors, especially given the recent pandemic. That is why we build in opportunities for free play, field days, and team bonding. We allow room and space for our kids to be kids.
We chose Highlands because of the level of education, emphasis on a global perspective, and collaborative, project-based learning. Also, we love the diverse, accepting community that encourages children to be individuals rather than cookie cutters of each other. - Current Highlands PArent
