    "Most of the individuals that graduate from Highlands attend an accredited university and go on to get their college degrees without any problems. Highlands does a great job of preparing students for college and the real world."

    "Throughout my entire K-12 experience at Highlands School, I do not have any complaints about the teachers. Of course, none of them are perfect, but overall the quality of the teachers is outstanding. The passion and care the teachers possess is inspiring. The teachers at Highlands were one of my favorite aspects of the school."

    "I went to this school from Kindergarten all the way up to Senior year. It has it's ups and downs, but I personally think it was a great school. It is small, which makes it more personal. While this can be a bad thing for some people, I liked it better than larger schools like the college I am in now. If I had the option, I would probably go back to this school again. While it may not have been the best, I thought it was pretty great."

    "There are a few teachers that aren't the best, but there is a select few who are absolutely amazing. I think that the class time are great and we have enough time. The curriculum follows the state and I have not had classes with the new curriculum. There are more options with online and AP classes."
