I am extremly disappointed that the non-custodial parent is completely neglected. I have gone through great lengths to be part of my children's lives and to participate in their educational development. However, Highland does not allow the teachers to contact a parent via telephone if that call is a long distance call. In addition, even though I have attended at the school on several occassions, met with the teachers, the school psychologist and the principal I still am not informed about my children's progress. Nor am I consulted regarding decisions that need to be made about my children's education. I have contact the administration with respect to my concerns and they have been ignored. The administration does not have the courtesy to return a call or letter.
I feel this is, by far, the best school my children have been enrolled in. We come from the Tucson area - the districts down there are in pretty sad shape. My kids test scores have improved dramatically. My son went from remedial reading groups to being one of the best readers in his class. What a wonderful group of teachers and staff. Keep up the great work!
The landscape at Highland is changing, diversity in the school is leaning away from the white majority,this is for the better. The down side to the whole issue is that the diversity is unwelcome. The quality in the teaching has been waining for a number of years. I hate to be negative but someone has to be real at our current situation at Highland.
I have a child in the first grade at highland. The teacher is excellent and all the staff at the school are very kind and wonderful to my child
Highland Ele. Arts School was without a doubt the best ele. school i have ever sent my childern to!

They added so much to my children's life!
