    "I'm shocked to learn our school only ranks a 5! The staff and teachers are all so welcoming and truly concerned about each student. Our son transitioned in from out of state beautifully, due to the teachers and staff. He knew, and was known, by many of the teachers and staff right away. Although the school building is old, most are in this part of the northeast. There is a newer addition and all of the classrooms I have been in are warm and inviting. In three years we have not had a bad experience with any teachers or staff. My son also receives special services, which they have gone above and beyond. Improvement areas might include updating building and technology. Although they are in the middle a a large capital campaign to do just that. Obviously we need to raise our score!"

    "My child has had some very good, caring, competent teachers. However, I think this school and the district as a whole lacks quality leadership. There is little consistencey in policy and procedures among grade levels and it seems like administration does little to oversee what goes on in the classrooms. The school seems to be behind in the implementation of technology and current pedagology and theory of best practice in education. However, there are some outstanding teachers who take it upon themselves to excel in these areas. My child was fortunate to have a few of them. I did not feel involved in anything other than being invited to parties and performances."

    "Highland Elementary has worked hard in the past years to improve curriculum and communication with parents and community. Principal works hard to meet all the needs of the students. New programs such as Parent University help parents help our kids."

    "If you have a special needs child, this school is for you, but if you have an above average child this school has nothing for you. I'm taking my children out to a private school so they will get attention as well."

    "I think the quality of the academic programs at the highland elementary schools is pretty good, the problem is with special education. The extra one on one isnt' always there or available. And it takes pulling eye teeth to get services provided."
