    "My 2 kids graduated from Highlands. Fairly speaking, it is not a bad school but has extra miles to go in order to be excellent. Academically it is mediocre. Curriculum is advance from Preschool to 3rd grade. After that, it matches most other schools. Teacher qualities are uneven. Some teachers enjoy teaching and are caring. Some are just doing a job. Some are irresponsible and not even qualified to be a teacher. The best teacher my kids had was Mr. Mozzone, who should be an example for all other teachers. However, every school has good teachers and bad teachers which is normal. At least Highlands prepared my kids adequately for the rigorous and challenging nature of the high school my kids are attending. The Christianity they instilled in my kids elevated their moral and behavioral standards that I can really see the difference between them and the kids from secular schools. Highlands also has some good programs like annual ACSI math Olympic, Music Festival, Speech Meet, and Art Festival. After all, parents, don't count your kid's education solely on the school. No matter which school he/she attends, your kid's success largely depends on your involvement and dedication."

    "I am a previous student of highlands. I have attended this school from preschool to 8th grade. Honestly I'll admit I had some teachers who were very sweet and caring. However, there are other teachers who should not even be teaching. The teachers had favoritism for certain students and acted as if they were teenagers. Some teachers would verbally tell students how they disliked them or make fun of students in front of their face. For instance my classmate was a little heavier and the teacher would tell her that she looked like Raven Symone when she was fat. Some teachers would just switch from being an English to Math teacher and the whole class would often fail a test because the teacher could not teach correctly. The administration is very close with the staff so when you complain about them nothing is done and it is always said to be a misunderstanding. I was not able to run for student council president because the teachers choose which students are able to run and they usually choose the student who is one of their favorites. All in all I would say I only stayed because of my friends but the teachers are completely unprofessional and the curriculum is poor at best."

    "I was a student at Highlands from preschool to eighth grade. While throughout my eleven years at this school I learned some valuable lessons and created a few important relationships with people, I found there to be unacceptable flaws for a school that claims to be a loving Christian environment and academically outstanding. I thank Highlands for providing me with my religious foundation, but in my opinion, some of the teachers did not exhibit Christian-like qualities. These teachers would teach Biblical principles, but at the same time, they would play favorites with the students, unnecessarily yell at the students, and more. At times they would even make fun of students in a "joking" manner, unaware that their comments were actually hurtful. Although I only saw a few teachers act in this way, any complaints made to administration did not change or penalize the teachers for their actions. In addition, I found that several teachers were not qualified to teach the subjects that they were teaching, therefore resulting in subpar learning for the students. I enjoyed some of my experiences at Highlands, but overall I do not believe it lives up to its claims or others' expectations."

    "Our 2 kids 7 & 5 yrs old started their preschool here in Highlands Christian Schools, San Bruno, CA. My 7 yrs old is now in grade 2 & my 5 in kinder college. At preschool they are not only learning biblical principles but also academically excellent, and learning how to read with comprehension with awareness of their surroundings, respecting others and appreciating as well as valuing even tiny things around. Their math subject is far advance. She is continually forming a habit, encouraged in her class, to do homework every night and study. She likes reading a lot especially encyclopedia. My 5 yrs old reads so well, with comprehension, and understands what's going on around us. They really love their school and included always in their prayers that God will help them stay in their school until high school."

    "Highlands Christian School is a an outstanding school on many accounts. The education level is accelerated and enriching. I see is vast difference between my daughter and other kids who do not attend Highlands, especially her broad vocabulary. The curriculum is much more advanced than I could remember and we couldn't be more pleased. Our daughter is very happy at the school and that is extremely important."
