    "We had some really cool unique things happen at Highlands. For example, Spring-Sanity, a school-wide dodgeball tournament and outrageously fun day of fundraising for the American Cancer Society. We put teachers, security guards, and principals into dunk tanks. Everyone gets excited for pep band and pep rallies, where there are always unique fun things happening. Teachers choreograph dances to surprise students with, create teacher bands and rock out at pep rallies, and are generally a really good time."

    "I have had a great high school experience so far. The teachers are easy to get along with and the GATE program has given me many opportunities to further my education through field trips, an apprenticeship, etc. There are also clubs I belong too which I have enjoyed learning new things and making friends. I have made life long friends through cheerleading and it has also taught me teamwork and dedication."

    "I have a lot of teachers that really take the time to make sure I understand the subjects. They keep the classroom fun, but at the same time it is to the rules and we are still learning."

    "It's not a great learning environment. Unless it's football season, there is a negative vibe going around all day."

    "Even though the learning environment stinks, the students still tend to be nice to each other when necessary."
