    "I have almost been here all my life and I have to say that this is probably the best school that your kids should go to the the teachers are the most intelligent no matter the grade. They will work with you until the very end. The environment is great for kids to learn in. I graduate this year and I wouldn't be here with out them. Thank you highlands school I loved every moment that shared with the teachers and my fellow class mates and the staff too, you're great I will miss you. David tanner Stephens"

    "I went to Highlands School ,I moved here from FLA. I love the small school system. The teacher and students were bonded along with students with other students.I have children in Highlands School I would not put them in any other school. I know most if not all the teachers.As for the principals anytime I have EVER had a problem they have taken action to fix it."

    "I have been going to Highlands School ever since I was in Kintergarden. And from my experiences in this school I can say that it has been great for me. Everyone one, including the facaulty, staff and students are so warm and welcoming. And work one on one with you. Sure we've had some unstable teachers (mainly in middle school) does NOT mean our school is bad. Honestly its not just our school that have their flaws. It's every other school. Not everything is perfect. And I'm actually speaking for a lot of other people that go here. Highlands is such a great school and we're honestly like a family here."

    "I went to Highlands my entire high school "career " and it used to be GREAT. I never had the current administration but I have siblings in the school. I can tell you that the principal, vp and guidance counselor are HORRIBLE. The principal is the first to believe the students are bad kids, he refuses to participate in school related activities that he doesn't HAVE to be at and he acts as though he never has time for issues he deems unworthy of his time. I will say that the students are becoming more main stream in pop culture and sometimes I feel as though some teachers are not encouraging in the appropriate ways. Also, the TEACHERS have a huge problem with TEXTING during class. I've had some kids show me pictures of the teachers texting instead of teaching. The community is the greatest asset of this school, that's about it."
