This school has the worst principal ever. She is very hard to communicate with. She Is very prideful, and does not want to hear anything you have to say. She insults and badgers the children. She asks the kids inappropriate questions. PLEASE DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE. .........

For those complaining about teachers or principles, like in some of the reviews, please note, it's been my experience that parents who hold accountable their children's actions will have no problems with teachers or the principle. The principle is fair and easy to work with. The teachers are superior to most schools in the Redlands School District. If you are one of those parents who sees no fault in their child and does not expect your child to do their homework, classwork, have good behavior, then y es you will have a problem with this school. Otherwise, your child will receive an excellent education. I think Mrs. Bartlett is the best teacher in the school district. If you are able to get your child in your class, count yourselves lucky. She not only will get your child where they need to be but teach them accountability for their actions and behaviors, help them with study skills, how to treat one another, the list goes on. As for parents, she gives you weekly updates on the progress of your child. This has helped me so much as a parent. IF YOU CAN GET HER, DO IT! I can't say good enough things about her. My child went up two years academically in her class.

This was once a wonderful school! But, now that the new principal has taken over, it's horrible! Not only has the school failed my child (and by "failed" I don't mean flunked), but so has the school district! My child was being bullied by the teacher! So have several other students that have come forward! They allow this activity to continue. I recently pulled my child out of this school because of this situation. Most of the teachers at the school are AWESOME, however, this unfortunate incident has been heart-breaking, to say the least.

This is a wonderful school with motivated staff and an accessible, upbeat principal. Parental involvement is high. Classrooms are new and continue to be upgraded, despite California's budget cuts. The older children benefit from RUSD's excellent band/music program. There is also a lot of diversity within the student population. We love it here!

Wonderful school with hard-working teachers and a great Principal. My kids love Highland Grove! There are many activities to choose from and a very active PTA.

The younger, more energetic staff has been let go thanks to the California budget cuts and the teachers who seem tired are staying. I dont care much for this school's staff... I would suggest anyone who is going to enroll their child to this school... to speak to MANY parents... there is mixed feelings... The school is more about testing online than to work in a sequence and consistency... I dont like that and having 4 children that have been exposed to other ways of learning (sequence)... I have seen a big difference in the success of this method.. not impressive... The upside... you have the Middle School right next door that is excellent!!!

Principal and teachers are wonderful at encouraging children to read and to care about the arts. This school fought hard during budget cuts, and with the assistance of parents and community, we were able to keep our librarian.

It is a good school. It is on the outskirts of east Highland. It has gotten quite crowded. I like the priciple and the teachers. The parent involvement is higher than most I have seen. A good school and only a little over 4-5 years old?

There is alot of parent involment in Highland Grove. Parents assist the teachers at any activity the teacher needs. withouth a douth Highland Grove has a Great Parent Involment. Kids love to see parents in different class rooms and they know they will have help in math or reading.

This school is the worst school my child has ever attended.True,there are some very good teachers.But some staff accuse children of whom they don't like of ridiculous things.Example-If your child asks for a single fruit snack,they will be accused of harassment and sent home.If your child is in the bathroom and is im there for more than three minutes,you get a referal.If you move too much at recess,you will get a call home.If you are too far out in the field,referal.My advice is to go to arroyo verde.It is just across the way.
