    "I have 2 students that have gone through the honors program at HMS. At the high school there have been several valedictorians from Highlands. I believe the honors program is as challenging as the other middle schools. the new principal is wonderful. The ONLY Science Olympiad team for the public KSD district is found at HMS. They began 3 years ago & have placed at regionals for 3 consecutive years and traveled to state competition for 3 years, Highlands also participates in the National History Day Competition. Again, Highlands is the ONLY middle school in the KSD school district to participate in this. 8th graders create a huge & challenging research paper. The band marches in Spokane's Lilac Festival each spring. The only negative I can say is lack of parent involvement. I feel 1/2 the students choose not to succeed. Every opportunity is given to the students. The principal is excellent as are the teachers. The honors program is very good."

    "I'm a student at Highlands Middle School(HMS). I'm a 6th grader. Most of the teachers are very nice and kind. The security it good, because they have cameras in the halls and outside. If there is a problem with some students in school or on class the teachers \staff work well on handling the situation. The counselors help kids that have problems with the other students or staff. It is usually clean in the halls thanks to the custodians. Teachers at HMS have unique ways of teaching us about math, science, ancient history, and others."

    "My son has gone for 6th, 7th and is now in 8th at Highlands. I'm not thrilled with the Kennewick School District as a whole. A handfull of teachers at Highlands are wonderful. The rest are in need of improvement. Much of the problem is that there are just too many students for the teachers, but manytimes my son is taught the intire year by aids or students still in school working on their masters etc. I hear the kids using horrible language outside when I pick up my son occasionally and the dress code definately isn't inforced. The public school system in general is in need of much help. School is a scary place these days. Highlands just had a girl emergency expelled for writing a threatening message on the bathroom wall. The police canvased the campus the whole next day. HMS wouldn't tell us what the threat was!"
