Academics

Highlands provides a seamless approach to learning that systematically builds on one success after another. As students move through our Primary, Elementary, and Middle grades, they are joined on their journey by a partnership of teachers, parents, and administrators working to develop increasing degrees of initiative, integrity, and self-confidence. Through quality time with teachers, open and respectful dialogue with each student’s parents, a richness of learning opportunities spanning academics, arts appreciation, physical education, character development, and leadership development, each vital element of the Highlands program comes together to create a special learning environment at a most special time in a student’s life.
