It's Open House Season: Explore Highlands on October 15

Fall is always an exciting time of year. With crisp autumn air and a new school year underway, we can’t help but think of new beginnings. If your child is soon to embark on the adventure of learning, we encourage you to take advantage of the fall Open House events offered by independent schools. You can learn a lot about a school from their website, but Open Houses provide an inside look, giving you a feel for the culture and community that is right for you and your child.

Highlands School would like to invite you to our first
Open House event of the 2015-16 academic year:

Thursday, October 15, 2015
9:00 a.m.
Highlands Learning Center
4901 Old Leeds Road, Birmingham, AL 35213

Explore Highlands School
Our Open House Events are very family-centric and allow each parent to learn more about our unique approach to PK-8 education. You’ll also get to hear from some of our current families as they provide a firsthand look at their Highlands experience. Here is an outline of the day:

Director of Enrollment Welcome: During the opening session, we will warmly welcome you to our school while discussing the benefits of an independent school education. Citing research and proven outcomes, we’ll help you determine what to look for in your child’s education, especially during the early years.

Meet the Head of School: Kavita Vasil, our head of school will share how Highlands School stands out from others in the area. You will learn more about our focus on 21st century learning, STEM programs, global awareness, and cross-curricular education.

A Highlands Story: A parent of one of our students will share her Highlands story, from searching for an independent school to making a decision she knew was right for her child. Several other parents will be onsite to provide a variety of perspectives for future Highlands families.  

Campus Tour: In small groups led by our current parents, guests will have the opportunity to explore our campus. You will get to see our classrooms, talk with teachers, and see students in action. This is the best way to become familiar with the learning environment at Highlands.
