Instruction

Dedicated to fostering a lifelong love of learning in a challenging and caring environment, Highlands School is distinguished by its successful formula for guiding students along the important journey from 4K through 8th grade – a formula which includes developmentally stimulating programs taught by dedicated teachers who are experts in the education of children. Set upon a beautiful campus that invites work and play, Highlands enfolds its students in the perfect educational environment. While our curriculum is rigorous, we strive to provide an atmosphere that is stimulating and engaging, while allowing each child to experience himself or herself as a growing, competent achiever. Throughout every area of the curriculum, students are given opportunities to develop and refine critical thinking and problem-solving skills as they work independently and as members of a team. Students are challenged and encouraged to achieve as much as they can in each grade level, even if it means delving into topics or skills normally encountered in the next grade. Highlands cares about each child’s happiness, each child’s achievements, and each child’s success and is dedicated to sending students out into the world equipped to build successful academic careers and successful lives.
