    "My school seems to shine with happy energy when I approach on Bunker Hill Dr. As the school has grown and new buildings have come in, the usage of space seems well thought-out, with plenty of space for kids' recesses and activities, as well as safety preserved. There is emphasis on reading with book fairs several times a year as well as trips to the library. The adults associated with the school, whether volunteers or paid aids, remain concerned about sustaining the quality of the education, as well as preservation of a cleaned and repaired facility.When I hear that kids get to go to Highlands School, I am confident that their public education will be a great opportunity for each individual child."

    "Our son started kindergarten at the Highlands last fall and we've been pretty impressed, not just by the entire staff there but the curriculum as well, since day one. There is a great group of dedicated teachers and support staff whose personal and professional mission is to provide a great place for learning academics and 'lifeskills' in inspiring and fun ways. I've seen their efforts go beyond their 8-hr work day to prep for their classes, parent-teacher conferences, etc. The principal is quite an inspiration to everyone and parents like me. Parent commitment to supporting the teachers and kids is phenomenal - not just through the PTA. Some local schools have significant CST/API scores, etc. and are not as culturally diverse as the Highlands. Highlands is an academic jewel that reflects both."

    "Our daughter is in kindergarten this year. We have found that, overall, the school is wonderful, with a great curriculum, exceptional parent involvement and warm, caring teachers who instill not only academics, but just as importantly, life skills both in and out of the classroom. The Principal is excellent and hands-on and we feel there really is a sense of community to this school. We are quite impressed with the level of parent dedication to their children's success as well as to their school experience. There are many varied programs and activities that encourage student participation and foster a love of learning. We are extremely pleased to be a part of this school."

    "We think that Highland School is wonderful and works to not only educate their students in basic skills, but works to instill compassion and citizenship in their students. We love the school. But we wish that the teachers' salaries were more competitive to those of surrounding districts since we have seen this school lose some very valued, experienced teachers on staff."
