    "Love the teachers, hate the environment"

    "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."

    "It depends on the teacher. Some go above and beyond, others scape by doing the bare minimum. Some teachers genuinely care about their students, others just don't want you to fail their class and make them look bad. There has only been one inappropriate student/teacher relationship that I know of happening within the last few years. This is good compared to other schools in the area. I had a couple grading consistency issues with a couple teachers, but it was resolved when brought to their attention. Many teachers really love what they teach and the job they have. Then there are others who obviously just wanted to have weekends and summers off."
